The LSA Department, led by Dr. Daniel Forger, has developed a mathematical model for adjusting our circadian rhythm while away from our "home" time zone. The gene that controls circadian rhythm is HER2 and is located on the #17 chromosome.
In his work, Dr. Forger has developed an App for people to use as a guildeline for sleep patterns while in different time zones. I found this article as I am looking for help for my upcoming 4 week Asian Tour.
I recently had my genome mapped and fourtunately my circadian rhythm is somewhat forgiving. However, I will still use this App as a guide.
Another great achievement by our wonderful school.
