Towards a whole-cell modeling approach for synthetic biology

Oliver Purcell, Bonny Jain, Jonathan R. Karr, Markus W. Covert, Timothy K. Lu
2013 Chaos  
To address this problem, we present a modeling approach for the design of synthetic circuits in the context of cellular networks.  ...  This reliance on experimental tuning is because current modeling approaches are unable to make reliable predictions about the in vivo behavior of synthetic circuits.  ...  Towards a whole-cell modeling approach for synthetic biology, we investigate a critically important question: How do synthetic gene circuits affect the host cell?  ...
