Course material for universities constantly needs updating and refinement. One area that required new material at The University of Akron was the Principles of Biology II course, specifically in the laboratory section. A new laboratory module was created and centered around hormone signaling in Arabidopsis thaliana. Brassinosteroid mutants were used to show students the event hormones had on plants. Students were to test root lengths by completing growth plate analysis.
