This animation shows the molecular interactions involved in the negative feedback loop responsible for circadian rhythms in mammals.
Watch these animations display the dynamic orchestration of the molecular events of the Drosophila biological clock.
Four lectures highlight the research of two scientists who have made groundbreaking discoveries elucidating the molecular basis of circadian clocks—the internal timekeepers that govern fluctuations in behavior and physiology on a 24-hour cycle.
Although tiny in size, the fruit fly has had a major impact on our understanding of circadian rhythms.
Dr. Rosbash discloses how scientists have persuaded Mother Nature to reveal the inner workings of the fruit fly's biological clock.
Dr. Takahashi describes the powerful strategies that he and others have harnessed for understanding biological clocks in mammals.
