Summary of the discussion quoted by @saswathy679
19th September 2021
Whiteboard discussion

Yesterday we were discussed about Seasonomics… Seasonomics collaborators were shared some important ideas about climate changes how will affects other animals and plants…? How can we connected to seasonal changes ?

Sukriti given an idea about aspects of Global warming causing seasonal changes. we can able to see the climate are changing depending on season. Sometimes have heavy rain,sometimes heavy cold , sometimes feels very hot… Why this variation is happening ? What was the reason ?

Sometimes feels like very hot during the summer season climate change is also affecting our biodiversity…
•Changes in distribution • Increased extinction rates • Changes in reproduction timings • Changes in length of growing seasons for plants.

Climate change causes warmer summer temperatures and inconsistent precipitation patterns. These environmental alterations affect the flowering periods of plants globally. As the global temperature increases, plants will flower earlier in the season. Mangoes are one of the most widely cultivated and popular fruits in these regions for its economic and nutritional values. The mango tree grows in tropical climates.

Global warming not only associates with warming but distruption in climatic pattern. ‘Climate Change’.

How can we connected climate changes to seasonal trees flowering & fruiting?

We are collecting data using phone … just clicking a picture of seasonal trees (Mango Trees, Gulmohar Trees, Jack fruit Trees)… posting in to CUBE groups … We are widely taking photos of mango trees …because they are very common in every where and looking flowering,fruiting,sprouting leaves etc.

Importance of methodology of data collection , collaborative process.

Data will be saved here;

Documenting becomes more natural when we post daily updates with photo evidence to Collaborators in the groups.

After we discussed about model system Drosophila melanogaster

Fruitfly collaborators objective is to finding native Drosophila melanogaster from surroundings.

Importance of drosophila melanogaster

Drosophila melanogaster
6 times Nobel Prizes winning work done in this particular model organism.

Last Nobel Prize in D.melanogaster was 2017 - Circadian rhythm study in molecular level. Jeffrey C hall, Michael Roshbash, Michael V young _ physiology or medicine.

First Nobel prize 1933 - T H Morgan. It was chromosome hereditary study …

In 1946, Muller was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine - For the discovery that mutations can be induced by X-rays
1933 - T H Morgan.
Chromosome hereditary study

Example :-
2 Eye coloured Drosophila melanogaster here comparing with one is Red eye & White eye .

How Fruitflies Get Red Eyes…?
What is the reason ? Is it because of colour pigments?
Sarvada sail from goa were mentioned about that Heredity in simple words can be explained as tranfer of characters to Drosophilaa the eye color,body colour,wings …from one generation to another Linkage is the association of genes on same chromosome .

Also we were studied that red colour is dominant over white eyed drosophila So maybe after generations… white eyed can be expressed
skin color pigment = melanin
Gene in DNA produces pigment.
Red eye color is wild-type and is dominant to white eye color. Eye color in Drosophila was one of the first X-linked traits to be identified.
