Brief description Engineered genetic circuits with predictable and robust behaviour promise unprecedented environmental and economic benefits. Yet much work remains to be done before living devices can routinely be built from a standarised set of biological parts -the goal of synthetic biologists. By studying how natural genetic switch circuits respond to transient signals, this project aims to uncover a set of design rules which can be used to construct and control purpose-built genetic networks and pathways. The results of this project will add to the molecular tookit available to synthetic biologists.
