Morning larks and night owls

Circadian rhythms

Check out my piece at The Conversation that highlights some exciting recent advances in the field of circadian biology, including Michael Young's discovery of a prevalent mutation in the clock gene cryptochrome 1 (cry1) that leads to a "night owl" phenotype in humans. We're excited about this finding because it builds on some recent work by Alicia Michael, Jenny Fribourgh, and Chelsea Gustafson in the lab that discovered how the CRY1 protein binds to its clock protein targets.
