SDB - Stochastic dynamical systems in biology: numerical methods and applications

I will present the molecular implementation and function of the autoregulatory loop that amplifies and maintains the expression of Krox20, a transcription factor governing vertebrate hindbrain segmentation. By combining data analysis, biophysical modeling, stochastic analysis and simulations, I dissect the autoregulation process as a function of an initiation signal that leads to promoter activation and subsequent mRNA and protein production. Autoregulation generates a bistable switch that turns a transient initiation signal into a persistent cell fate. The duration and strength of the input signal controls  patterning by modulating the distribution between the cell fates.
