Function, design and evolution of elementary gene circuits

Abstract

This report describes recent work on a quantitative theory that relates molecular mechanisms of gene control to the organism's physiological behavior in its natural environment. When applied to catabolic operons of Escherichia coli in the human intestine, the theory predicts selection for the correct mode of gene control. It also makes surprising predictions concerning the organism's phenotype and habitat.
