So late risers? @mayur please post photo of this plant sleeping! And at what time?
I guess CUBE SN college Nattika has some interesting data of this plant as well as of Touch-me- not plant!

Actually we observed at 9:50 it leaves must have open earlier, yes we need to take the photographs early morning, may be from 6am or so.

And today, let’s catch them in the evening to see when exactly they go to sleep and connect it to the weather station report on light intensity, temperature, humidity etc. Let’s connect our one side ( CUBE) with the other( Maker’s Space & Tinkering Lab)!
pH meter development is awaited for Drosophila medium prep etc @Ashish_Pardeshi

Can this be compared with other legumes? What is their time?

Ohh, I never thought of it, we should check it definitely .
It will be very intresting to check this phenomenon at different latitudes.

No news from weather station friends on the turn of weather on 29 June 2019!!!? @Ashish_Pardeshi

Turn of Weather Data , please!

Does the sunlight and it’s intensity affect the opening …

What could be their opening up time in winters…only observational study can show…

But i have a doubt that if that happen can we call circadian rhythm is an example of quick epigenetic that is taking place and one more doubt i have if it is epigenetics then what is the exact process of how the gene expression is being regulated @Arunan @mayur @G_N

What could be the reason of Phyllanthus closing leaves during night?.

Lets look for Clock Genes! @bivasnag Do two genes or most likely gene products interact in such a way that expression of the first gene is inhibited by the product of second at a certain concentration, in a feed-back mechanism in a time dependent manner?

A the protein product of gene a -----> b gene producing protein product B… and Protein B feeds back on gene a and inhibits its expression!
How is this model? @bivasnag @mayur @jaikishan @G_N @meena74

Model seems good. How do we identify the candidate proteins and genes?
