New Software Programs for the Design, Analysis and Parameter Estimation of Synthetic Intracellular Systems
Andrea Degasperi (NUID-UCD) in collaboration with Lan K. Nguyen (NUID-UCD and Monash University, Australia) developed two software programs in the context of SynSignal. The first program, Dynamics Visualization based on Parallel Coordinate (DYVIPAC), allows the user to discover whether a biochemical system, synthetic or found in nature, is capable of complex non-linear input-output dynamics such...
3rd SynSignal Progress Meeting in Dublin
SynSignal partner Imre Berger (University of Bristol) is part of the team which developed a baculovirus-based tool-kit for highly efficient multigene delivery in a wide range of mammalian cells including stem cells, fibroblasts, neurons and many others. Their novel MultiPrime system can be used for reprogramming fibroblasts into neurons and for precision editing of human chromosomes. All findings...
