This information is very important. It is required for costing
and quality assurance purposes.
We prefer freeze dried material to be submitted.
Biological replication is very important. We insist on at
least three biological replicates per line / treatment. When applying for
analysis, the number of desired biological replicates must be stated.
Experiment type: If your experiment involves a specific treatment, or
tissue separation, and no mutant or transgenic line, you should use plants
with a defined accession number. This is for correlation of experimental
For GARNet projects, the Nottingham Arabidopsis Stock Center will send you seed from a defined accession free of charge
(quote GARNet on your seed request).
If you are using a mutant or transgenic line, please
donate both this line and the wild type background line to NASC if they are
not available from the stock center.
