Gene expression in vertical-farm strawberries

A research on vegetative growth and flowering on strawberry plants that are being grown in a vertical-farm set-up. In this project the effect of different light treatments on the expression of relevant genes will be analysed. Detection of mRNA levels of genes associated with flowering and vegetative growth in strawberry leaf and flower bud tissue.
