SummarySelection for high and low number of seed per pod was practised in families derived by selfing single irradiated plants from a homozygous line of Arabidopsis thaliana (Heyn.). Such plants were given a single initial dose of 100, 200 or 300 krads of 60Co gamma rays. Selection was also carried out in the control. Selection in the high lines acted principally to reconstitute the control genotype, though this was not entirely successful and most high lines became homozygous for deleterious… CONTINUE READING
