Modeling Objectives

  1. Develop a mechanistics ODE model of the population to predict gene expression dynamics
  2. Question? .... Will the color production be fast enough to be useful to the user? Or will it be too late?
  3. What is the relationship between UV exposure and reporter gene expression?
  4. Can we construct a useful calibration curve of color as a function of UV?
