BME researchers discover that dynamics may drive network evolution

November 29, 2005

Dr. Andre Levchenko along with PhD student Robert Prill, a collaborator, and an affiliated BME faculty member Pablo Iglesias, have recently found that the structure of many biochemical networks may be strongly influenced by the dynamic properties of the motifs making up these networks. These findings may shed new light on how evolution has shaped these complex regulatory networks controlling life. The links to the article, the accompanying primer and the review of the article are given below (free, click titles to view articles).
