How the full moon clock and the new moon clock differ. a Normalization of the data, example for ZT 15: scatterplot of the log fold-change for the FullMoon vs NewMoon comparison against the log-counts-per-million logs in reads for each gene. The log fold-change of the data was centered on 0, showing that the libraries were correctly normalized. In the figure, differentially expressed genes are shown in red (p < 0.05) between the two conditions. b In response to the FM, many coffee leaf genes were transcriptionally down or up regulated compared with the the response to the NM at the different Zeitgeber times – (ZT0 = dawn, ZT12 = dusk), (color pink = down; color green = up). c Examples of these responses (from inside to outside) include histone gene expression, heat shock genes, pentatricopeptide family genes, photosynthesis related genes (photosystem, Calvin cycle, chlorophyll metabolism, carotenoid). Numbers associated with the up or down arrows indicate the number of genes up or down-regulated, respectively, at each ZT. We provide both numbers for ZT24 and ZT0 (ZT24 in italics) (coffee plant photo credit, Breitler jean-christophe)
