Individuals are transplanted to soil and individual mutants can be identified.
In the photo on the left, a wild-type individual is flanked by a mutant that produces too many flowers (left) or one that produces no flowers (right). The right photo shows individual cells being grown in liquid culture for biochemical analysis. Click on this photo to see the mpeg movie of the cells shaking on the platform.
