Recreating the stripe patterns found in animals by engineering synthetic gene networks

23 septiembre 2014

Researchers are trying to understand how networks of genes work together to create specific patterns like stripes. They have gone beyond studying individual networks and have created computational and synthetic mechanisms for a whole ‘design space’ of networks in the bacteria Escherichia coli. The system proves to be more efficient and powerful than building networks one-by-one, they report.
