Detection of interaction between circadian oscillators in plants
Plants utilize circadian clocks to adapt themselves to daily environmental changes.
t is presumed that each cell contains self-sustained circadian oscillator(s) and they coordinately work in the plant body.
However, the manner how they interact with each other is poorly understood.
This project aims to explore the interactions between circadian oscillators by measuring circadian rhythms of single cells in a plant.
I challenge to develop bioluminescence reporter systems for the detection of cellular circadian rhythms using Lemna plants (duckweeds).
