Your research project is:
Generation of cut flowers (roses) with an extended shelf-life using genetic engineering technologies
Explanation: Flower’s shelf-life and senescence is an essential trait for the cut flowers in the horticulture industry. One of the typical scenarios to extend a shelf-life is to block the ethylene-production pathway in flowers, silencing its genes: let’s call them ethylene production genes, (EPG).
Your presentation will be given in the form of a 1000+ words report contains four main parts:
Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Discussion
The introduction will cover:
Material and Methods:
Which gene silencing strategies you decided to use to silence EPG and why?
Explain your expected results
References should not be older than 2016. Any referencing style is acceptable but needs to be consistent throughout the text
A 1000+ word review should represent your 30 min presentation. You can add pictures and diagrams if required. Use paragraphs to separate different parts of the review. Show in bold critical components of the gene silencing mechanisms.
You must clearly address a research topic
