Arabidopsis thaliana, all the genome were completely decoded in the 20th century, is still one of the typical model used in the field of molecule biology research.
The picture observed in a variable pressure SEM shows beautiful fine structure of the Arabidopsis trichome on a leaf of Arabidopsis thaliana. It gives us the imagination of a phoenix flying away from the cellular sea.
