Illustration showing two plants, one dying, the other thriving, determined by small number of genes.

The adaptability of a strain of the Arabidopsis plant to any particular climate is determined by a relatively small number of genes--in most cases, around 100 genes. In this study, these genes were identified in various strains of Arabidopsis.
