Self-sustained oscillation is a fundamental property of circadian clocks found in many organisms. However, evolutionary advantage of the self-sustainability has been only speculatively discussed. In this seminar, I will present a simulation result of our mathematical model indicating that seasonality facilitates the evolution of the self-sustained circadian clock, which was consistent with empirical records.
