Proposed Phenotype Screens

1. Plant and Chloroplast Morphology

2. Physiology

  • Photosynthetic parameters (by chlorophyll fluorescence kinetics)
  • Photorespiration
  • Rescue of seedlings with small molecule nutrients

3. Metabolites:

  • Starch
  • Membrane – associate pigments such as carotenoids and chlorophylls
  • Tocopherols, ubiquinones and plastoquinones.
  • Amino acids
  • Lipids
  • Seed composition
