Photosynthesis | Material Cycles and Energy | BIOLOGY A. Rapid Cycling Brassica Basic Kit
Rapid Cycling Brassica rapa (syn. campestris), known as RCBr, has been selectively bred to complete its life cycle quickly under conditions which can be easily set up in the laboratory. RCBr is an excellent model organism to for exploring Mendelian genetics concepts. The kit has been developed in collaboration with Science and Plants for Schools based at Homerton College, Cambridge.
• Seed to seed in 5 weeks • Produces yellow flowers • Pollinate with bee-sticks The kit demonstrates: • Life cycles • Reproduction of plants • Relationship between insects and plants
Rapid Cycling Brassicas need to be grown under 24 hour illumination from a bank of fluorescent lights. The kit does not contain a light bank but the notes include comprehensive instructions for the construction of one from readily available materials. It is supplied complete with photocopiable laminated worksheets.

B. Laboratory Grade Seeds for Examination, Germinations and Experimentation
These seeds are for use in physiological and germination experiments. In the interests of safety it is our policy to supply natural ‘untreated’ seeds, however, occasionally this is not possible. Where treated seeds are supplied they are clearly labelled. The weights stated are correct at the time of packing but some loss may occur due to drying in storage.
