Abstract:
The ability to maintain a roughly constant period over a broad range of temperatures (temperature compensation) is a defining feature of circadian clocks. A techique for achieving compensation thorugh the tuning of only three key parameters is introduced, and discussed via its application to models of the Neurospora clock.
