Re: Gold Standard changing to ?


Leaf color is one of the many thousand characteristics a 
plant has. A single gene change leading to a yellow centered leaf 
like in June is applouded by everyone( and rightly so).
If a single gene change out of about 25000 genes a plant has, is so 
easily actepted why then it is not accepted that many other 
gene changes are possible at the same rate that are less clearly 
visible. Why is is that if a single gene change can be so important 
that changing the identity of a pair of chromosomes as is happening 
in a mitotic recombinant  is to difficult to accept that it can 
give  al kind of new characteristics to such a sport.. Example of the 
latter:a green edged sport from a whole yellow plant. There is no 
suspicion, Ran,  that divisions of a single plant (originator stock!) 
can lead to different plants, that is a fact, even if they look 
similar at first sight.
