The plant circadian clock is an endogenous time keeper that controls many physiological and developmental processes in plants. Up to date, most of our information about the Arabidopsis circadian clock came from population-level studies. Recently, using single-cell level approaches we’ve observed interesting spatial waves of clock expression [1]. In this talk I overview these results and introduce some new work that this has inspired. I will describe how a combination of experiments and mathematical modelling have been essential to shed further light on our understanding on this fascinating mechanism.
