Current Research Interests
Mathematical modeling has become increasingly popular as a tool to study regulatory interactions within gene-protein networks. From the modeler’s perspective, a challenge arises in the process of building a mathematical model: the same regulatory network can be translated into different types of models at different levels of detail, and the modeler must choose an appropriate level to describe the network. My research involves developing a new modeling approach that classifies components in the networks into three classes of variables, which are described by different rate laws. These three classes serve as “building blocks” that can be connected to build a complex regulatory network. Our approach combines the best features of different types of models, and we demonstrate its utility by applying it to the budding yeast cell cycle.
