We are planning to build a set of low-tech (low-cost) growth rooms for
Arabidopsis. The type we want would contain a few racks, each with four
shelves, each shelf large enough to fit about ten to twelve 40 X 30 cm
trays. Could anyone suggest designs that have proven successful (dimensions,
type of ventilation, lights, distance between shelves etc)? One of our
concerns at the moment is that some designs can create substantial
differences in ventilation and temperature between shelves. I will
be grateful for any suggestions and lessons from other people's experiences.
I will post a summary of the replies.
