An algorithm for the stochastic simulation of gene expression and cell population dynamics

Daniel A Charlebois
Over the past few years, it has been increasingly recognized that stochastic mechanisms play a key role in the dynamics of biological systems. Genetic networks are one example where molecular-level fluctuations are of particular importance. Here stochasticity in the expression of gene products can result in genetically identical cells in the same environment displaying significant variation in biochemical or physical attributes. This variation can influence individual and population-level fitness. In this thesis we first explore...
