Research Synopsis

Living organisms monitor and react to their environment. Following detection, signal transduction involves a myriad biochemical reactions arranged in different steps. Cascades can relay, amplify, dampen or modulate signals in order to achieve a variety of cellular responses. To make sense of these, approaches from the field of dynamical systems can be utilised to determine how the behaviour of the circuit depends on network topology.
