An important goal for synthetic biology is to build robust and tunable genetic regulatory networks that are capable of performing assigned operations, usually in the presence of noise. In this work, a synthetic gene network derived from the bacteriophage λ underpins a reconfigurable logic gate wherein we exploit noise and nonlinearity through the application of the logical stochastic resonance paradigm. This biological logic gate can emulate or "morph" the AND and OR operations through varying… Expand
Logical stochastic resonance with correlated internal and external noises in a synthetic biological logic block.
TLDR
The intriguing results of this study show that it is possible to build a biological logic block that can emulate or switch from the AND to the OR gate functionalities through externally tuning the system parameters, and are underpinned by the presence of an optimal amount of random fluctuations.

Realizing the transformation of logic gates in a genetic toggle system under Lévy noise

Engineering of regulated stochastic cell fate determination
TLDR
This work uses synthetic biology approaches to engineer bistable gene networks to demonstrate that stochastic and permanent cell fate determination can be achieved through initializing gene regulatory networks (GRNs) at the boundary between dynamic attractors. Expand
Information-based measures for logical stochastic resonance in a synthetic gene network under Lévy flight superdiffusion.
TLDR
The synchronization degree of the mutual information for the accomplished logical stochastic resonance of two repressive proteins of the synthetic gene network is analyzed by synchronization variances, which shows that those mutual information changes almost synchronously. Expand
Switches in a genetic regulatory system under multiplicative non-Gaussian noise.
TLDR
Through this investigation, it is observed that the non-Gaussian heavy-tailed noise can better induce the switches between distinct genetic expression states and additionally, it accelerates the switching process more evidently compared to the Gaussian noise and the bounded noise. Expand
