Stochasticity in gene expression and signaling

Genetic expression is a naturally noisy process. The study of the origin of these variations is fundamental for the understanding of genetic circuits. Cell size, as well as the speed at which a cell grows, are important factors in this noise. In this project, we are interested in including the size and growth rate so that a correlation between these factors and noise can be found. We will use Monte Carlo simulations using the Gillespie algorithm to obtain experimental parameters for confirmation of these effects.
