Introduction: Organisms, including humans, have an internal biological clock that helps them adjust to a regular circadian rhythm. The aim of this study was to investigate the existence of genetic changes in biological clocks in the search for information of different people and to draw a pattern for searching health information.

Materials and Methods: The present study was a fundamental applied type that performed by quasi-experimental method. The statistical population of the study consisted of 69 students who were selected by purposive sampling. Data were collected in two stages of completing the general health questionnaire, morning and evening sleep type and observing the behavior of completing search tasks and log analysis using images recorded from users in Camtasia studio software. Then, data analysis performed using log file analysis, chi-square and ANOVA tests.

Results: The analysis of the subjects' search and retrieval behavior showed that these individuals have performed a total of 1574 strategies and techniques in the search process. The results showed that the highest frequency is related to the intermediate sleep group (65%). Also, 11.5% of users slept in the evening and 23% slept in the morning. People with nighttime sleep had better information search time in less time than others (P = 0.017).
Conclusion: None of the sleep types can affect the tests and cause cycles. Based on the genetic changes that occur, humans have different characteristics that create individual and functional differences, and therefore the range of individual differences is very wide.

Author Contribution: All authors contributed equally in this work.
Conflict of Interest/Funding/Supports: No.  
Ethical Considerations: All ethical concerns respected in this study. Also, it was approved in ethical committee of Qom medical university (IR.MUQ.REC.1397.014).  
Applicable Remarks: To help for understanding to what extent are genetic changes in the body clock effective in finding and seeking information.
