About this book


This comprehensive book, written by experts in the field, provides historical and current information about the circadian clock, molecular properties of clock components and their roles in health and disease. The Circadian Clock includes advances in several aspects of clock research with chapters ranging from gene expression, mathematical modeling, physiology, neuroscience and comparitive biology. It aims to give an integrated view how the biochemistry and physiology of an organism is organized over the 24 hours of a day and how disturbance of clock function can lead to disease. The Circadian Clock is an ideal book for researchers, clinicians and graduate students in the fields of biochemistry, cell biology, physiology, neuroscience and bioinformatics.
