The mechanical responses of hypocotyls, the embryonic stem of a plant between the cotyledons and root, are of interest because they can reveal insight into the timing and mechanosensitivity of growth hormones in plant growth and development. This independent study project aimed to develop a protocol for quantifying the viscoelastic responses of Arabidopsis hypocotyls.
