Main conclusion: we keep S2

Core system does not oscillate. How can we enhance it?

We need a 'delay' so we can:

1 add more genes to the circuit

2 use quorum sensing (qs)

we chose quorum sensing that can allowed both 'delay' and population synchonization. two ways to add it:

  • S4: Inspired from Garcia-Ojalvo: oscillating repressilator + oscillating qs module = synchronized oscillations
  • S2: it amounts to replace single interaction by more complex interactions: should create delay

We first analyse S4 due to modularity.

damped oscillating core system + oscillating qs module = damped oscillations.

We continue with S2:

S0 module in S4 gived us insides in parameters analysis for S2.

given analysis results we keep S2.
