dc.description.abstract Epigenetic modifications are at the forefront of agricultural research for crop improvement, especially with the public drive to eliminate chemical fertilizers in crop production. Basic knowledge on plants’ responses to lack of nutrients is imperative to drive progress in this direction. In this study, samples of Brassica rapa grown in different nutrient stresses are analyzed physiologically by recording height and molecularly by Southern Blot Analysis. Stunted growth along with global methylation level differences indicate that there are differences occurring in gene expression and in DNA methylation simultaneously in plants lacking nutrients.
