課程概述

地球上決大部分生物的生理途徑會因地球自轉造成的環境節律而有~24小時的「晝夜節律 (Circadian rhythm)」,晝夜節律由生物體內的生理時鐘所調控並與環境適應息息相關。本課程將以植物的晝夜節律相關研究領域為主,安排相關文獻範疇,藉由教師指定與學生自行選擇適合口頭報告之研究文獻,由學生輪流報告及授課教師導讀。文獻研讀範疇包括:
1. 晝夜節律主要訊息「光」的接收與傳遞
2. 「生理時鐘 (circadian clock)」相關基因調控機制
3. 晝夜節律與生理功能:植物生理範疇包含生長與發育、開花、環境逆境等研究領域之文獻
4. 晝夜節律之「反饋調控迴圈(regulatory feedback loops)」機制
期中與期末將由教師回顧所報告文獻,並針對同學報告與互動情形作綜合分析與評量。
Most organisms on the earth perceive external cycling of daily changes like light-dark exposure or temperature fluctuation for internal responses and increase their fitness in the environment. Such internal responses appearing rhythmically between a period of one full day ~24h, are called "circadian rhythm". the circadian rhythmicity of plants also functions as a clock for plants to anticipate daily changes of the surrounding environments and is involved in regulators of multiple biological pathways. The students will pick or be assigned literatures for his/her presentation about plant research including "signal input of circadian rhythm", "gene regulation of plant circadian clock", "signal output of circadian rhythm", or "regulatory feedback loops". 

課程目標
學生可經由文獻研讀掌握晝夜節律學門基礎,並藉由研究領域最新研究動態,學習相關研究方法與實驗設計,並能藉由提問與討論培養研究邏輯與評斷的基礎。
Students will know the new studies about the plant circadian clock, learn the scientific logic of experiment designation, research methods, and thinking via the article reading, presentation, and discussion. 
課程要求
1. 修課同學應預習指定閱讀所列之回顧文獻。
2. 同學報告之文獻須於報告前二週與指導老師討論是否適切,並於報告前一週公佈予其他修課同學,修課同學皆須熟讀各週選讀之文獻。

1. Students read the listed review articles in "Assigned Readings" first.
2. Students will survey the literatures and pick up the article with the instructor two weeks before his/her presentation. All students will need to discuss and comment on the chosen article during the discussion.
