Blue Plants: Transgenic Plants with the GUS Reporter Gene
An investigative laboratory developed for the introductory biology curriculum using transgenic plants is presented in this chapter. The transgenic Arabidopsis plants we use contain the GUS reporter gene under the control of the cor15a gene promoter, which responds to cold stress. Following induction by cold or other environmental signals, the gusA gene will respond by producing the enzyme beta-glucuronidase (GUS). When plant tissue is incubated with the chromogenic substrate X-gluc, those tissue

How Do Things Fall? Activity
Students learn that it is incorrect to believe that heavier objects fall faster than lighter objects. By close observation of falling objects, they see that it is the amount of air resistance, not the weight of an object, which determines how quickly an object falls.
What is Temperature?
Temperature is the measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in an object. Temperature in science is measured in Celsius or Kelvin. (04:55)
