Abstract

A detailed understanding of how cells and tissues generate 24-hour periodicities remains one of the great challenges to contemporary cell and molecular science. Nonetheless, there has been near spectacular progress in the past 5 years in our knowledge about the molecular and cellular machinery responsible for generating circadian rhythms. This progress has come about in large part through the use of molecular genetic approaches in mature (e.g.Drosophila Neurospora) and new (e.g.Arabidopsismouse) chronobiological model systems.
