Time of Our Lives": tutorial focussing on the molecular genetics of biological
clocks, by Jo Selwood, 2002.
|A practical guide to hands-on experiments.|
"Rhythms in organisms- An introduction for
observing, experimenting, recording and analysing". Prof.
Wolfgang Engelmann's 1999 web textbook details the equipment and methods required
to monitor biological rhythms automatically. This is a modified mirror from
his web site,
http://bioclox.bot.biologie.uni-tuebingen.de, which also contains German
versions and other web texts on clocks.
Part I - Experimental design and details of methods, e.g.
timelapse video recording.|
Part II - Examples of rhythms to test from plants, amoebae, animals and
Part III - Teaching about rhythms, with possible experiments for
schools, universities and some for the home.|
Note: each Part takes some time to load. Each Part has
the full index and cross-references but only links within that Part will
