Oscillations in Genetic Networks

A number of genetic networks exhibit oscillations. In mamalian systems this include Hes, p53, NF-kB plus a number of hormones. We study dynamical models for oscillations with the aim of uncovering basic mechanism as well as functional purpose for observed oscillations.
