    Eukaryotic algae have long served as model systems for analyses of circadian (daily) rhythms of many phenomena, including rhythmic gene expression, cell division timing, taxes, photosynthesis, and others. More recently, circadian clocks have been demonstrated in cyanobacteria, and rapid progress on the characteristics and mechanism of timekeeping in these prokaryotic algae ensued. These daily timekeepers enhance the fitness of algae and may contribute to seasonal responses.
