  • Measurement of Circadian Gas Exchange Dynamics in Arabidopsis thaliana

    Dr. Alex Webb and Dr. Antony Dodd (Cambridge University (UK), Department of Plant Sciences) and PP Systems have developed a unique gas exchange system for use with Arabidopsis. The custom system is being used as part of a program to dissect the architecture of the signal transduction networks that regulate circadian rhythms of stomatal aperture and photosynthesis. Since this is being addressed ...

  • CIRAS-2 Export function-simplified data format with numerical and graphical data views

    Perhaps some of the most exciting moments for CIRAS-2 Portable Photosynthesis System users come when the time arrives to view meaningful data sets. What many new users will not realize is that they have the option of viewing these data in two formats: raw CIRAS-2 format (.dat) and a much streamlined Export format (.tab). Both formats easily and automatically import and parse into spreadsheet ...
