Inner clock: Biologists research the mechanism of an auxiliary clock
(Bielefeld University) In December, the Nobel Prize for Medicine and Physiology will be awarded for the identification of genes that control the inner clock. The honoured academics examined fruit flies to determine the biorhythm. Biochemist Professor Dr. Dorothee Staiger of Bielefeld University has been researching the inner clock of plants for twenty years. Her team has now published a new study in the research journal Genome Biology.
