WHAT ARE SYNTHETIC BIOLOGICAL CIRCUITS?

A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF GENETICS

A simple diagram of the control process of a GRN I made, inspired by https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/d/df/Gene_Regulatory_Network_2.jpg/720px-Gene_Regulatory_Network_2.jpg
  1. Each gene, input, and output is represented by a node in a graph where arrows connect nodes where a relation exists
  2. Each node in the graph can either be on or off (like 1 and 0 in a binary system!)
  3. If the gene is on, it is expressed. If inputs and outputs are off, they’re present.
  4. The new state of a node is a Boolean function of the prior states of the nodes with arrows pointing towards it.
