Genetic research breakthrough

Scientists have found the key to controlling the human body clock. Suffering from transient insomnia (sporadic bouts of sleeplessness) myself I am hopeful that this will soon develop into new viable treatments.

From the linked BBC article:

“The gene CLOCK and its partner BMAL1 control the body’s internal clock.”

Now, I’m no expert in genetics but I would have thought that a gene called CLOCK would have been one of the first places to look for clues about defective circadian rhythms.
