Cytokinin Data (Excel spreadsheet)

Very basic Excel graphing tutorial

Note for 12:30 lab - several of the lab groups didn't quite convert grams to milligrams correctly, which threw off your final numbers. Look on the tabs in the Excel spreadsheet - I've marked the tabs with the first letters of the last names that were on the data handed in.

To think about as you interpret these data:

  • Did you expect more chlorophyl retention in the light or the dark? Why? Look up information on the effects of light on chlorophyl in excised tissue.
  • Did you expect more chlorophyl retention with higher levels of cytokinin? Why? Look up information on cytokinin. Is there an optimum concentration to use? Can a plant have too much cytokinin?
