  Arabidopsis thaliana Summary
Arabidopsis has no inherent agricultural value and is even considered a weed, but it is one of the favored model organisms of plant geneticists and molecular biologists, and it is the most thoroughly studied plant species at the molecular level.
Arabidopsis thaliana, commonly called arabidopsis, Thale Cress, or Mouse-ear Cress, a small flowering plant related to cabbage and mustard, is one of the model organisms for studying plant sciences, including genetics and plant development.
While gravitropic response of arabidopsis root organs is their predominant tropic response, specimens treated with mutagens and selected for the absence of gravitropic action showed negative phototropic response to blue or white light, and positive response to red light.

 Arabidopsis thaliana populations in Sweden
Arabidopsis thaliana (Brassicaceae) is a highly selfing annual herbaceous weed that is distributed globally across northern temperate zones.
thaliana is a poor competitor; in order to persist at a site, a population typically requires a disturbance that will clear competitors.
thaliana less often exhibits its typical weedy lifestyle: populations are sometimes found in fallow fields, but south-facing mountain slopes are a common habitat for established populations.

 Introduction - The Arabidopsis thaliana Genome Database
The flowering plant Arabidopsis thaliana is an important model system for identifying genes and determining their functions.
The evolution of Arabidopsis involved a whole-genome duplication, followed by subsequent gene loss and extensive local gene duplications, giving rise to a dynamic genome enriched by lateral gene transfer from a cyanobacterial-like ancestor of the plastid.
Arabidopsis has many families of new proteins but also lacks several common protein families, indicating that the sets of common proteins have undergone differential expansion and contraction in the three multicellular eukaryotes.

 LEHLE SEEDS Welcome & Home Page
As such, Arabidopsis roots, growing in the bottom 50-70 mm of medium, regardless of pot depth, are repeatedly subjected to severely reduced oxygen levels following routine subirrigation (Passioura 2006).
While it is common to grow Arabidopsis in containers as short as 2.25" (57 mm) in height, subirrigation under such conditions requires close monitoring to avoid prolonged root water-logging which quickly slows root tissue and can stunt whole Arabidopsis plant growth.
Given the fine porosity of common Arabidopsis media, recent research (Passioura 2006) suggests that a pot would need to be at least 120 mm deep to guard against the possibility of ever accidentally inducing complete hypoxic conditions throughout all a pot's growth medium.

 BioMed Central | Full text | Locational distribution of gene functional classes in Arabidopsis thaliana
thaliana is one of the most important model systems for identifying genes and determining their functions and its genome was the first complete genome of a plant to be sequenced.
thaliana and of note is a major re-annotation of the entire genome in 2005 [21].
The distribution of all genes and the distribution of individual functional classes of genes in Arabidopsis thaliana were found to be more clustered than we would expect from a locationally independent distribution; and although tandem duplications contribute considerably to clustering, they are clearly not the only factor affecting the observed clustered distributions.

 Multinational Coordinated Arabidopsis thaliana Genome Research Project
Arabidopsis thaliana, a small plant in the mustard family, was chosen for this large-scale research effort because it offers many advantages for detailed genetic and molecular studies.
Because Arabidopsis is one of the most intensively studied organisms, and is a direct model for 250,000 closely related species, we believe that it is appropriate to undertake a major investment in developing new information retrieval tools (IRTs) for Arabidopsis in particular and plants in general.
The focus of research with Arabidopsis is likely to change in the future from the immediate emphasis on mapping, sequencing, and gene identification, to the long-term questions of general biology and gene function during plant growth and development.

We have constructed a restriction fragment length polymorphism linkage map for the nuclear genome of the flowering plant Arabidopsis thaliana.
Markers consist of both cloned Arabidopsis genes and random low-copy-number genomic DNA clones that are able to detect polymorphisms with the restriction enzymes EcoRI, Bgl II, and/or Xba I. These cloned markers can serve as starting points for chromosome walking, allowing for the isolation of Arabidopsis genes of known map location.

Seemingly little more than a garden pest, scientists are using the mustard weed, Arabidopsis thaliana, as a powerful model organism, to study the biology of numerous other plants.
Strikingly, the scientists found 30 percent of all Arabidopsis genes are actively expressed from both strands of the DNA double helix.
By identifying new genes and identifying new ways those genes are likely to be regulated, the Arabidopsis scientists have moved Arabidopsis research into a new era, where the monumental accomplishment of a complete genome sequence serves as the most rudimentary beginning for subsequent studies.
