7.36/7.91/BE.490 Homework 4 Due May 6 at 1:00 PM This assignment is designed to help you gain some basic familiarity with physico-chemical models of biological systems. You are not necessarily expected to understand all the details of how these models are developed or implemented. However, many scientists are choosing to develop models of biological systems to aid in their understanding of how systems work and so it is useful to have an idea how these models work. In this assignment, you will be asked to manipulate a model of a synthetic biological system called the Repressilator that was developed by Elowitz and Leibler in 2000. The paper is also available from the website as a reference. Note that the model provided differs somewhat from the model presented by Elowitz and Leibler though most parameter values are taken from their paper. See the paper for a description of the Repressilator. To run this model, open matlab and download and save the files
