Molecular mechanisms of circadian biology

Why do you wake up everyday in the morning and go to sleep at night? The Kojima lab deciphers genetic codes of biological rhythms to understand how the molecular machinery controls circadian biochemistry, physiology and ultimately behavior. This research integrates neuroscience, molecular/cellular biology, genomics, bioinformatics and computational biology.
