The Biological and Soft Systems Sector of the Cavendish Laboratory (BSS), jointly with Pietro Lio' from the Computer Lab have invited Prof Michele Caselle to give a BSS seminar, at 4pm on the 3rd Feb. This will be in the Small Lecture theatre (Cavendish Lab).
Simple regulatory strategies to control stochastic fluctuations in gene expression.
Fine tuning of gene expression is essential for many cellular processes, from cellular responses to external stimuli to the cell cycle and circadian clocks. However, gene expression is subject to stochastic fluctuations, naturally inducing an uncertainty in the amount of gene products, with potential consequences on biological functions and phenotypes.
In this talk, after a general introduction to gene expression and its regulation, we discuss a few regulatory strategies which guarantee optimal control of these stochastic fluctuations.
There could be a little bit of time that Friday to meet Michele, so people should get in touch if interested in meeting him.
