Horology of the Body

In the future, your P Diddy blessed $7,200 diamond encrusted chronograph won’t just tell you the world time, or the status of your stock portfolio but believe it or not, according to a new study published in Japan – a display of your individual body time. (and maybe even deliver “drug treatments at certain body times. wink.)

The report described how the authors analyzed more than 100 time-indicating genes in a test mouse and developing a “molecular timetable” that provided an accurate body time based on the sampling of gene expression levels at a single point in time.

Can’t wait.
