CUBE Chatshaala on 23rd August 2020.
Circadian rhythm studies done by Kshipra, a CUBist from Jharkhand. She summarizes her work done which she started on 13th August at 1pm by keeping some tomato pieces on a sheet of paper and observing & noting down the number of flies she gets at every 2 hour interval.
Activities of fruit flies expected to see by Kshipra during this study were feeding, courtship behaviour, egg laying, mating and defecation.

All of this started with discussing the sleep-wake pattern of fruit flies and later an attempt was made to plot a graph of the same. But some basic questions like how is a graph plotted, why is there a need for a graph to be plotted? arose which pushed us towards a much-needed diversion from the original topic. The next thing which was discussed was the graph of microbial growth curve. We have a petriplate (with some bacterial colonies in it) which was taken as a reference to depict the different phases of the curve. Many keywords (sometimes, jargons) surfaced, which were broken down/simplified so that we come up with an understandable theory.
35 CUBists from 31 centres joined the webinar.
