The role of JAR1 in insect feeding response
The Experimental Design
It was important for the UNL scientists to set up an experiment that would provide a fair test for their hypothesis. They needed to establish a testing environment that included three living things: 1) hungry cabbage loopers, 2) Arabidopsis plants that were considered genetically normal, and 3) Arabidopsis plants that were homozygous for the jar1 mutation. Scott could grow the needed plants and then order the insects from a supplier once he had his plants ready for the experiment. When all the conditions were met, they were ready to test their hypothesis.
