      I’m doing a writing assignment on plant stress physiology. The stress that I chose to research was heat stress. One of the things that I have to do is describe at least 3 experiments that I plan to perform (hypothetically speaking, of course). At least one experiment should be at the molecular/cellular level and the other at the physiological level. I also need to describe why the experiments are being performed. I am having trouble with thinking up some experiments and I have no idea what the molecular/cellular/physiological levels are. That is one of the things confusing me. Can somebody help me think of some experiments??

      molecular level is, what happens with molecules – changes in mRNA expression, protein levels, amounts of low-weight compounds (e.g. signaling molecules)
      physiological level – what the plant does as a whole (growth, stomata etc.)

      So for physiological, I could do something involving the sun and how it can stunt the growth of a plant? I dont want the experiment to be or sound stupid, so I’m trying to think of some really good ones.

      yes, but you will hardly regulate the sun 😉

      This is why I need some assistance thinking of some experiments. I’ve done the other parts of the writing assignment, all I have left is the experiments and explaining why they are being performed.
