Structural Analysis and Design of Biochemical Dynamic Networks

Thursday, December 4, 2014

Elisa Franco

Host: Prof. Massimo Franceschetti

Dynamic networks are at the core of many biological functions. For instance, oscillators drive cellular rhythms, and bistable mechanisms switch on and off developmental pathways. To gain control over molecular dynamics, a variety of synthetic clocks and switches have been built in the past decades. One important challenge in their design is the uncertainty and variability of parameters such as reaction rates and concentrations. In my talk I will describe "parameter-free" methods that focus on the network structure, intended as the sign pattern of the interactions among components. In particular, I will present a structural classification of oscillators and multi stationary systems based on the exclusive or simultaneous presence of negative and positive feedback loops. I will show that these structural tools are applicable to realistic models of experimental systems, and in several cases can immediately yield analytical insights on the system capacity for a specific dynamic behavior.
