Polymerases per second (POPS):
A biological PID? Input and the objective to be controlled could be levels of a protein or a metabolite. Output would be summed from the activity of three transcription units. Would need a way to create a set-point and convert the difference between the present level and the set-point to serve as input to the PID circuit.
- Proportional term. Activity is proportional to input (current level).
- Integrative term. Activity is proportional to the total input over a recent timeframe (how can this be achieved?)
- Derivative term. Activity is proportional to the change in input over a recent timeframe (how can this be achieved?)
Might be helpful to study mechanical or analog PID circuits.
