Arabidopsis thaliana is a small flowering plant with various properties that make it an excellent organism for experiments in molecular genetics. These properties include having a small nuclear genome, a near absence of dispersed repetitive DNA, and a generation time of 4 to 5 weeks. In addition, mutations that affect hormone synthesis and response, many different enzyme activities, and numerous developmental processes have been identified and characterized.
