In multicellular organisms, the initial patterns of gene expression are regulated by spatial gradients of biochemical factors, known as morphogen gradients. Because of biochemical noise in the morphogen gradients there are associated spatial errors in the positions of target gene patterns. Using a simple single morphogen and/or single target gene model, we… CONTINUE READING
