Highlights of Moina group presenting epigenetic mechanisms of haemoglobin gene expression during CUBE STEM Conference, 2019
Descrption of the picture? What presentation?
cardamine group explaing their project
The group highlighted the species variation in Phyllanthus and sleep wake cycle in Phyllanthus amarus. The group members showcased observations from different geographical locations across country I.e. Kolkata, Mumbai and Delhi. The Delhi group also mentioned about effect of environmental factors (i.e. light duration) on leaf movements in Phyllanthus fraternus and amarus species
The Moina group explained the epigenetic regulation of hemoglobin expression under normal and hypoxic condition. They hypothesize the histone post translational modification I.e. acetylation to be involved in active transcription of hemoglobin gene in Moina under hypoxic conditions. They also mentioned that Moina reproduce by sexual reproduction under hypoxic conditions which might bring variations in progenies leading to selection/ evolution.
Cardamine group elaborated the floral dip method for transformation in cardamine hirsuta plant. They are looking for Cardamine hirsuta as a substitute of Arabdidopsis thailand, the famous plant model organism.
