Landscape and flux in gene networks
A/Prof. Chun-He Li
Fudan University

Cellular functions in biological systems are regulated by the underlying gene regulatory networks. How to investigate the global properties of gene networks is a challenging problem. In this talk, I will present some approaches we recently developed, i.e., the potential landscape and flux framework, as well as the dimension reduction approach based on landscape theory, to study the stochastic dynamics of gene networks. The basins on the landscape characterize different cell states. The landscape topography in terms of barrier heights between stable states quantifies the global stability of the gene regulatory system. The kinetic paths based on the minimum action principles quantify the transition processes between different cell states. I will also discuss some applications of this approach in specific biological systems, including cell cycle and p53 cell fate decision system.
