Summary

Modern molecular biology and genetics has enabled significant strides in research on the basic properties of biological rhythms. These advances will, in addition to relevance for understanding of cell and body biochemistry, health, and aging, provide insights into the molecular control of behavior. This comprehensive account of the molecular basis of circadian rhythms will cover the recent advances in addition to providing a solid groundwork in the basic aspects of biological timing.

Author Biography

Amita Sehgal received her Ph.D. in Cell and Molecular Biology from Cornell University Medical College. Her postdoctoral training was conducted at Rockefeller University, working on the genetic and molecular basis of circadian rhythms in the fruit fly. She has continued this line of work as an independent investigator at the University of Pennsylvania. She is currently an Associate Professor of Neuroscience and an Associate Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
