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 main hypothesis for this project were:

        * Genetic differences exist in the faba bean lines with different seed size and seed coat color, and DNA fingerprinting can be used to determine the genetic similarities and differences between these line.

        * The black seeded lines (IPK 296/78 and IPK 251/78) are the most genetically similar lines.

        * The black seeded lines have more condensed tannins than the other lines.
