What You'll Get


You probably already know whether you are a morning lark or a night owl, but did you know that there are genetic links to this phenomenon? Have you ever wondered what your genes say about your unique circadian rhythm?

In this hands-on workshop, you’ll do your own genetic test for the Per3 gene, investigating a varying length genotype that is linked to preference for morning versus evening activity, also known as your chronotype, using PCR and gel electrophoresis.

We’ll also discuss what sleep is biochemically, how sleep is regulated, how your sleeping habits change across your lifespan, and what sleep means for your health and disease risks.

Note: Please wear closed toed shoes for the lab safety protocol.
