Luciferase Reporters in Circadian Research

This video was made by the BioClock Studio for use in an upper division undergraduate class on circadian rhythms and biological clocks at UC San Diego.

Cyanobacterial Circadian Oscillator

This animation demonstrates the circadian oscillator mechanism in the cyanobacterium Synechococcus elongatus. It was produced and developed by members of the BioClock Studio Winter 2016 at UC San Diego.

Cyanobacterial Circadian Clock Output Mechanism

This animation shows how the core circadian oscillator in the cyanobacterium Synechococcus elongatus sends output to regulate the timing of other intracellular processes. It was produced and developed by members of the BioClock Studio Winter 2016 at UC San Diego.

Mammalian Retina and Photoreceptors

This tutorial video was produced by members of the BioClock Studio Winter 2016 at UC San Diego and clarifies the anatomy and function of neural circuits for image-forming and non-image-forming vision.

2-Process Model of Sleep

This tutorial was produced by members of the BioClock Studio Winter 2016 at UC San Diego, and clarifies how sleep homeostasis and the circadian clock are hypothesized to interact to determine the sleep-wake cycle.
