NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Based on gene expression in the skin, researchers can gauge a person's circadian phase to within a few hours, according to a new study.

Circadian phase can influence the best time for a person to take a particular drug or undergo surgery, but the authors of the current study argue that the current gold-standard approach to assess human circadian phase, the dim-light melatonin-onset assay, is cumbersome and difficult to standardize.
