Latest Circadian oscillator Stories
Fruit flies are pretty predictable when it comes to scheduling their days, with peaks of activity at dawn and dusk and rest times in between.
All organisms, from mammals to fungi, have daily cycles controlled by a tightly regulated internal clock, called the circadian clock.
Sleep and systems biology researchers from the University of Surrey found that jet lag or working the late shift could have a significant impact on health.
Researchers at the University of Cincinnati (UC) have identified key molecular components linking circadian rhythms and cell division cycles in Neurospora crassa, providing insights that could lead to improved disease treatments and drug delivery.
New research finds that marine animals have not only a built-in circadian clock, but also a separate internal clock that helps them follow tidal patterns.
