One step closer to understanding how tidal clocks tick

A comprehensive study on the rhythmicity of limpets — mobile intertidal molluscs — employing field and laboratory observations, as well assembling a clock oriented transcriptome — shows that in the same way that these animals behave with a tidal rhythm, so too are a majority of their genes expressed in a tidal (and not circadian) rhythm, including some genes which were thought to play an important role in circadian clocks/timing.
