This Week in Science

In this week's Science Translational Medicine, a multi-institute team of scientists report on the use of an algorithm to build a database of human genes that are rhythmically expressed in biological time regulated by the circadian clock. The researchers applied the algorithm — called cyclic ordering by periodic structure, or CYCLOPS — to the gene expression collection of 13 tissues from 632 human donors and identified rhythms in gene expression across the body.
