Cloning carrots. (Junior Division).

The purpose of this project is to compare which of the three different structures has the most cell growth. The first thing you have to do to clone is sterilize all the equipment. Measure 1.6 grams of carrot callus medium into 500mL/1000mL of distilled water and 2.0g of agar. Hear until solution is clear. Bore a section of the cortex from the carrot. Slice carrot into pieces. Transfer the carrot into culture tubes. Repeat steps 2-5 for the other parts of the carrot. Let the carrot micropropogate under florescent light for 24 hours/day. Allow drying, then remeasuring. Figure the percent of the different masses.
