|About this Project||
This team consistently shared enthusiastic updates about the progress of their experiment and seemed to genuinely care about understanding the plant growth differences between their phyB mutant plants and control groups. In addition, they uploaded photos of their experiment on a nearly daily basis and implemented all recommendations given by their advisor for statistical analysis and graphical representation of their data. Other teams would benefit by taking such thorough, consistent data and photographic documentation for the entire duration of the experiment like this team has done. They would also do well by following this team's example of utilizing the insight and expertise provided by their mentor to learn as much as possible about plant physiology and experimental design.
