A model for the spatiotemporal design of gene regulatory circuits

Mathematical modeling assists the design of synthetic regulatory networks, and models that can predict the performance of a design are fundamental for synthetic biology. The predictability depends crucially on what assumptions the model considers. For example, a common assumption is to consider negligible the effects of intracellular physical space. The mathematical model described in this … Leer más
