Abstract: This talk will focus on mathematical models of inducible and repressible operons, and the variety of dynamic behaviours that these gene regulatory networks may display. Concrete examples will be drawn from the lac operon, the tryp operon, the lysis-lysogeny switch in phage lambda, and the developmental oscillations in Hes1 expression.
