Seed Sterilization and Seedling Growth on Plates in the Model Grass Brachypodium distachyon

Aylin Haas, Michael Raissig
2020 Bio-protocol  
Brachypodium distachyon is a model grass closely related to wheat and barley. New resources and methods are being developed and Brachypodium is becoming a popular model for developmental biology, cell wall biology, (phylo) genomics, and genome evolution (Scholthof et al., 2018). Sterilization of seeds and seedling growth on plates is the first step to start working with Brachypodium. This is a cheap and straightforward protocol that was successfully used before (Raissig et al., 2016 and 2017) .
