The genetic analysis of biological rhythms has been advancing for nearly 50 years and provides one of the great successes in understanding a complex character at behavioural and molecular levels. The lecture will focus on how clock mechanisms have been conserved across the animal kingdom and how the same molecules involved in 24 hour circadian behaviour may also be involved in 12 hour tidal cycles as well as seasonal programmes.
