In the first study of its kind for the field of circadian biology, UTM researchers used RNA sequencing to observe the expression of genes in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), a tiny region of the brain’s hypothalamus region that governs the biological clock in mammals. Their findings pinpoint a gene that appears to regulate the biological clock and act as “master control” of the central circadian pacemaker.
