Biological Clock Organizations
Society for Research on Biological
Rhythms (SRBR) SRBR promotes the advancement of basic and
applied research in all aspects of biological rhythms and the
distribution of this information to research scientists, students,
and funding institutions.
Biological Clock Researchers
Johnson - The Carl Johnson Laboratory (Vanderbilt) Research in
this laboratory is directed towards understanding the cellular and
molecular bases of biological rhythms in a variety of organisms:
cyanobacteria ("blue-green algae"), eukaryotic algae, higher
plants, and animals.
PRC Atlas (C.Johnson Laboratory) A Phase Response Curve (PRC)
is a plot of phase-shifts as a function of circadian phase of a
stimulus such as light pulses, temperature pulses, or pulses of
drugs or chemicals. The PRC Atlas is a collection of hundreds of
published and unpublished PRCs.
Dr. Steve A. Kay
- Dr. Kay focuses on the study of the circadian biology of a
wide range of organisms, from humans to fruit flies to plants.
Dr. Andrew Millar -
University of Edinburgh This laboratory's current research aims
to understand how the circadian clock is constructed and adjusted,
how it affects plant life and how the clock is evolving. Most of
their research is on a small plant called Arabidopsis
Dr. Michael Young - Rockefeller University Research in this
laboratory focuses on mutations in seven genes that have strong
effects on circadian (~24 hour) locomotor activity rhythms of
Drosophila fruit flies.
