Bacterial gene networks and the cell cycle
Bacteria are able to grow and divide over a huge range of timescales. Does this adaptability place physical constraints on the design of their gene regulatory networks? I will describe my plans to investigate this using simulations and experiments and show a few preliminary simulation results.
This is a weekly series of informal talks given primarily by members of the soft condensed matter and statistical mechanics groups, but is also open to members of other groups and external visitors. The aim of the series is to promote discussion and learning of various topics at a level suitable to the broad background of the group. Everyone is welcome to attend..
