Summary:
Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have cloned a gene that regulates circadian rhythms in plants, providing an increased understanding -- on a molecular level -- of the processes that enable organisms to anticipate and adapt to daily variations in the environment.

La Jolla, CA, August 4, 2000 – Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have cloned a gene that regulates circadian rhythms in plants, providing an increased understanding -- on a molecular level -- of the processes that enable organisms to anticipate and adapt to daily variations in the environment. According to Steve Kay, Ph.D., Professor of Cell Biology and an author of the study, "The work moves scientists in the direction of understanding how this gene helps plants keep accurate track of time, an extremely important capacity for organisms that are completely dependent on the daily cycle of light."
