We found the average before deflagellation to be 55.56 motile cells and at 50 minutes to be 43.80 motile cells. We conducted a t-test comparing motility of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii before deflagellation and at various time intervals (Table 2). We determined the p-value was less than 0.05 at 8.59 x 10^-10 by comparing before deflagellation and t = 0. With a p-value smaller than 0.05, we determined that there was a significant different in motility initially after deflagellation. We determined the p-value was less than 0.05 at 3.98 x 10^-2 by comparing before deflagellation and t = 50. With a p-value smaller than 0.05, we determined that there was a significant different in motility at 50

A pervious study conducting at Yale University, found that full flagellar regeneration occurred with in 90 minutes after deflagellation (Rosnbaum, et al.,1969). Our results presented evidence that our hypothesis was not supported. The average number of cells that were motile before deflagelltion was 55.56 of Chlamydomonas. The average number of cells that were motile 50 minutes after deflagellation was 43.80 motile cells. The difference in motility was significantly different before deflagellation and after 50 minutes of flagellar regeneration. From our results, we concluded that Chlamydomonas reinhardtii did not regain full motility after 50 minutes of flagellar
