These two groups are usually referred to as monocots and dicots, respectively.
During this entire process I continually endeavor to return questions to the students themselves, sometimes rephrasing them to direct the flow of conversation but frequently simply asking, "What do you think?" As we explore the possible explanations for those regular patterns of holes, we eventually touch on how monocots grow and how they are different from dicots.

Inserting foreign genes into plants is not new; scientists have been engineering broad-leaved, dicot plants such as tobacco and tomatoes for more than a decade.
