Where can I find the molecular structure of the Cryptogramma acrostichoides?

Asked by coastiegirl96 (630 points ) April 22nd, 2012

Hey fellow jellies,
I have been looking for hours trying to find some kind of picture of the molecular structure of the Cryptogramma acrostichoides so that I can make a model of it for a school assignment. I can’t find it anywhere and would really like some help getting directed towards a website that has that information. Thanks! (:

I’m confused. You can the molecular structure of a fern plant? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptogramma_acrostichoides

@ro_in_motion I am looking for a DNA diagram of the parsley fern (Cryptogramma acrostichoides). Thank you for the suggestion though.

I think you are going to need more information before you begin your assignment. DNA for most organisms looks the same—a double helix twisted tightly around histone cores.

@coastiegirl96 Any luck? I’ve looked all over.

I don’t know it you have time to pursue this lead, but I found this article detailing DNA sequencing work that Jordan Metzgar is doing with the assistance of a well equipped lab run by Mike Barker and his wife Katrina Dlugosch at the University of Arizona. Metzgar is doing his PhD work on the DNA of the Parsley Fern at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks..

I think, at the least, you can contact the researchers directly and ask for help.

ENA—select “Genetic code.”
