Mathematical models demonstrate the integration of information through cellular signal transduction pathways
Research report (imported) 2006 - Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics
Molecular approaches reveal components and mechanisms of cellular stress sensing and adaptation. In addition, mathematical modeling has proven to foster the understanding of some basic principles of signal transduction and signal processing as well as of sensitivity and robustness of information perception and cellular response. Main modeling principles are exemplified here for a model organism, the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
