The expression of genes is regularly characterized with respect to how much, how fast, when and where. Such quantitative data demands quantitative models. Thermodynamic models are based on the assumption that the level of gene expression is proportional to the equilibrium probability that RNA polymerase (RNAP) is bound to the promoter of interest.(More)
With the increasing amount of experimental data on gene expression and regulation, there is a growing need for quantitative models to describe the data and relate them to their respective context. Thermodynamic models provide a useful framework for the quantitative analysis of bacterial transcription regulation. This framework can facilitate the(More)
With the increasing amount of experimental data on gene expression and regulation, there is a growing need for quantitative models to describe the data and relate them to the different contexts. The thermodynamic models reviewed in the preceding paper provide a useful framework for the quantitative analysis of bacterial transcription regulation. We review a(More)
The study of gene regulation and expression is often discussed in quantitative terms. In particular, the expression of genes is regularly characterized with respect to how much, how fast, when and where. Whether discussing the level of gene expression in a bacterium or its precise location within a developing embryo, the natural language for these(More)
