Abstract

Recent work on the circadian clock of the unicellular green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii strengthens its standing as a convenient model system for circadian study. It was shown to be amenable to molecular engineering using a luciferase-based real-time reporter for circadian rhythms. Together with the completed draft genomic sequence, the new system opens the door for genome-scale forward and reverse genetic analysis.
