A basic challenge in systems biology is to understand the dynamical behavior of gene regulation networks. Current approaches aim at determining the network structure based on genomic-scale data. However, the network connectivity alone is not sufficient to define its dynamics; one needs to also specify the kinetic parameters for the regulation reactions.(More)
E. coli is widely used for systems biology research; there exists a need, however, for tools that can be used to accurately and comprehensively measure expression dynamics in individual living cells. To address this we present a library of transcriptional fusions of gfp to each of about 2,000 different promoters in E. coli K12, covering the great majority(More)
To understand the dynamics of transcriptional response to changing environments, well defined, easily controlled, and short-term perturbation experiments were undertaken. We subjected steady-state cultures of Saccharomyces cerevisiae in chemostats growing on limiting galactose to two different size pulses of glucose, well known to be a preferred carbon(More)
The SOS genetic network is responsible for the repair/bypass of DNA damage in bacterial cells. While the initial stages of the response have been well characterized, less is known about the dynamics of the response after induction and its shutoff. To address this, we followed the response of the SOS network in living individual Escherichia coli cells. The(More)
Gene arrangement into operons varies between bacterial species. Genes in a given system can be on one operon in some organisms and on several operons in other organisms. Existing theories explain why genes that work together should be on the same operon, since this allows for advantageous lateral gene transfer and accurate stoichiometry. But what causes the(More)
Physicians in their daily practice are exposed to vast amount of laboratorial data in electronic medical record (EMR) systems, that should be taken into account in the clinical decision making process. The aim of this study is to explore the impact of different methods of visualizing laboratorial data on physicians' ability to perform common tasks related(More)
