Computational evaluation of different arrangements for the circadian clock in Arabidopsis thaliana.
MetadataShow full item record
The circadian clock is an endogenous timekeeper that enables individuals to predict and adjust to their environment's regular differences between light and dark and high and low temperatures. This biological timing mechanism enables the organism coordinate evolutionary and metabolic occurrences to the best time of the day. Such a system is of significant value to plants as they cannot alter their place when the climate becomes detrimental as opposed to animals. The plant clock is a sophisticated system of interwoven feedback loops. Mathematical modeling methods have been used over the past few decades to comprehend the clock's internal functioning in the Arabidopsis thaliana model plant. These attempts have generated a range of increasingly complex designs. Here, a review of the research is presented which is done in order to find out the molecular machinery responsible for circadian rhythms. Along with this, a simple model and alterations in this model are conducted to check out the impact of such changes on phases as well as period of rhythms. An effort is also done to show comparison of model in relation to the findings presented in previous research. We are proposing an applicant model centered on LSODE optimization sub-routine calculation.
