One Shade Too Dark

--- tale of condensed tannins in faba bean seed coats 


Project Information Introduction Objective Hypothesis Materials / Methods
Results and Discussion Conclusions Errors and Future Consideration Acknowledgements Bibliography


The conclusions for this project are:

Conclusion 1: There are genetic differences between the faba bean lines, and DNA fingerprinting is a very useful tool in biotechnology.

Conclusion 2: Snowbird and FB6F3-3-1 are zero-tannin lines. 

Conclusion 3: Both branches of condensed tannin biosynthesis pathway exist in faba beans, but epicatechin is the more abundant condensed tannin monomer in the seed coat of faba beans.
