My Path from Chemistry to Phytochrome and Circadian Rhythms.

  • Author(s): Tobin, Elaine M
  • et al.

I summarize my scientific journey from my first interest in science to my career investigating how plants use the phytochrome photoreceptor to regulate what genes they express. I then describe how this work led to an understanding of how circadian rhythms function in plants and to the discovery of CCA1, a component of the plant central oscillator.
