Chronobiology

The circadian clock is a basic biological system that measures and indicates time of a day. This cell-autonomous clock system coordinates physiological activities. We have been studying the mechanistic bases and their divergence of circadian clock systems in photosynthetic organisms.

Some of the members are studying the behaviour and development of the "social amoeba" (dictyostelid slime mould). Currently, our research interest is focused on interaction between related species mediated by secreted factors and by direct interaction of receptors.
