Abstract

Researchers are now building synthetic circuits for controlling gene expression and considering practical applications for engineered gene circuits. What can we learn from nature about design principles for gene circuits? A large body of experimental data is now available to test some important theoretical predictions about how gene circuits could be organized, but the data also raise some intriguing new questions.
