What does the filiform apparatus do at the entrance into ovule?
It helps in the entry of pollen tube into a synergid
It prevents entry of more than one pollen tube into the embryo sac
It brings about opening of the pollen tube
It guides pollen tube from a synergid to egg
Wood fibre

What is antisense technology?
A cell displaying a foreign antigen used for synthesis of antigens
Production of somaclonal variants in tissue cultures
When a piece of RNA that is complementary in sequence is used to stop the expression of a specific gene
RNA polymerase producing DNA
Haploids are more suitable for mutation studies than the diploids. This is because
haploids are reproductively more stable than diploids
mutagens penetrate in haploids more effectively than is diploids
haploids are more abundant in nature than diploids
all mutations, whether dominant or recessive are expressed in haploids
