The purpose of this study is to understand the molecular functioning of the Arabidopsis AS2 gene. In our experiments, we used CRISPR technology to create mutations in the AS2 gene. These mutations are predicted to change AS2 protein structure and function, which may result in a mutated leaf. Analyzing the effects of new mutations allows us to better understand protein function.
