Arabidopsis thaliana

Owing to it's small size, rapid life cycle, and small genome Arabidopsis was the first plant to have it's entire genome sequenced... About 26000 genes, very close to homo sapiens... :lol:

Very important:
1. Write all names as you should- italic, first letter capital
2. Please write larger explanations
3. Let's try to find important stuff(don't do like us mods and say Entamoeba coli
A protozoan ) :lol: :lol: :twisted: :twisted:



Regards,
Andrew

Armadillium vulgare the common pill bug or roly poly! It is a terrestrial crustation. I just did a report on it and it is one of the few scientific names I know. It lives 2-3 years and it can detoxify metals after ingesting them by de-ionizing them.

Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.
