HHMI researchers Thomas M. Jessell and Michael Rosbash honored for significant contributions to medical science.
New research has revealed what keeps animals' internal clocks running on time through the long nights of winter and the long days of summer.
HHMI scientists have found that the biological clock that sparks a burst of morning activity in fruit flies plays extra duty in resetting a second clock, which jumpstarts activity in the evening.
HHMI researchers devise a technique that prevents export of mRNA from the nucleus.
When an animal is exposed to constant illumination, its internal clock goes haywire. Mutant flies studied by HHMI investigators don't seem affected by intense light.
Cuando un animal es expuesto a una iluminación constante, su reloj interno se confunde. Moscas mutantes estudiadas por investigadores del HHMI no parecen ser afectadas por la luz intensa.
hedding Light on Circadian RhythmsTwo teams of HHMI researchers and their collaborators have found what may be the missing molecular link between sunlight and the circadian clock.
eCircadian clocks maintain the sleep-wake cycle for a 24-hour day in a variety of organisms. Two HHMI researchers and their colleagues have discovered more of the clock's molecular components.
