A tiny, protein-operated clock inside our cells that operate based on the 24-hour day cycle. These circadian clocks are important for the proper biological function of different organs – heart, liver, lungs, brain, skin. Yet, we don't know exactly how they interact with other basic and crucial biology, such as DNA repair – the process our cells constantly undergo because we are perpetually bombarded with stuff that wrecks DNA. The study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
