The timeless (tim) gene is essential for circadian clock function in Drosophila melanogaster. A putative mouse homolog, mTimeless (mTim), has been difficult to place in the circadian clock of mammals. Here we show that mTim is essential for embryonic development, but does not have substantiated circadian function.
SciCrunch is a data sharing and display platform. Anyone can create a custom portal where they can select searchable subsets of hundreds of data sources, brand their web pages and create their community. SciCrunch will push data updates automatically to all portals on a weekly basis. User communities can also add their own data to SciCrunch, however this is not currently a free service.
