Table 2 Higher seed yield from transgenic Camelina lines

From: Over-expression of AtPAP2 in Camelina sativa leads to faster plant growth and higher seed yield

  1. Plants were grown in a growth chamber under a 16 h light 22°C/8 h dark 18°C temperature/photoperiod regimen and then transferred to a greenhouse after flowering. Values are means ± SD (n = 4-6). Within each row, values marked by different lower case letters are significantly different (p < 0.05). Trials I and II were independent experiments carried out in different growing seasons. OE, overexpressed line; WT, wild type.
