Circadian oscillators provide rhythmic temporal cues for a range of biological processes in animals and plants, enabling anticipation of the day/night cycle and enhancing fitness. Near 24 h oscillations are maintained at the gene transcription level, which integrate environmental cues such as light and temperature and internal cues such as metabolism and signalling. Characterising these interactions is vital for understanding how physiology is optimised with respect to the time of day.
