Results of research:
"In the snapdragon bloom yellow flowers, from the cream of the dye that chalcone, we have found that you are combining a yellow dye aurones by two of the function of the gene of chalcone glycosyltransferase gene and aurone synthetic gene. So, we introduced these two genes from snapdragon in the morning glory. In the experiment, we used the morning glory "54Y system" that generates a dye chalcone cream. This line of flowers, there is a feature that the petal is likely to shrink without opening clean.
The results of the experiment, as well as snapdragon, yellow dye aurone are synthesized in the petals of the morning glory, yellow morning glory reblogged flowering. In addition, shrinkage of petals that have been seen in "54Y system" has improved, I now clean flowering.

It will be nice if it becomes available! I love it nodding
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...
