Tomato

(Solanum lycopersicum) is an excellent model species to study the genetic processes that give rise to variation in development. A number of wild species closely related to tomato can be found in the genus Solanum. Together these represent a huge source of variation in many developmental traits, including shade avoidance and leaf morphology. Moreover, a complete set of genomic and molecular tools have been developed for  this species, including introgression lines ...
