Seedling or vegetative tissue?
If one has to check the expression of a gene which is expressed during the vegetative stage of development, which tissue should be the choice of plant material. obviously it will be vegetative tissue but, when does one extract RNA from seedlings and when does one extract RNA from vegetative tissue (leaves) ?
What are the advantages of extracting RNA from seedlings? Most paper i saw had extracted from seedlings, I can't figure out why dont they use leaves instead of seedlings. Can someone please answer me?
