Quick Reference

The broad bean; also called the fava bean, the horse bean, the Windsor bean. A plant often used in cytogenetics because its cells contain a small number (N = 6) of large chromosomes. The semiconservative nature of DNA replication was first demonstrated by analyzing autoradiographs of 3H thymidine-labeled chromosomes from cells of Vicia root tips. See Chronology, 1957, Taylor et al.; favism.
