Nonlinear Dynamics in Biological Systems by Jorge Carballido-Landeira, Bruno Escribano

By Jorge Carballido-Landeira, Bruno Escribano

This ebook provides contemporary learn effects when it comes to purposes of nonlinear dynamics, focusing in particular on 4 subject matters of broad curiosity: center dynamics, DNA/RNA, mobilephone mobility, and proteins. The ebook derives from the 1st BCAM Workshop on Nonlinear Dynamics in organic platforms, held in June 2014 on the Basque middle of utilized arithmetic (BCAM). At this overseas assembly, researchers from diversified yet complementary backgrounds, together with molecular dynamics, actual chemistry, bio-informatics and biophysics, awarded their newest effects and mentioned the longer term path in their experiences utilizing theoretical, mathematical modeling and experimental methods. Such was once the extent of curiosity inspired that the choice used to be taken to supply this e-book, with the organizers of the development appearing as editors. all the contributing authors are researchers engaged on diversified organic difficulties that may be approached utilizing nonlinear dynamics. The ebook will allure specially to utilized mathematicians, biophysicists, and computational biologists.

In order to quantitatively understand how this distortion affects our observations, let us first consider a simple example. Assume that the distribution of sequences that we want to measure consists of one unique sequence of length L that appears in a pool N times. Let us assume that the probability of reading a nucleotide correctly, p, is constant. If p < 1, then there is a non-zero probability that the sequence we think we are observing differs from the sequence that is actually in the pool. Smaller values of p, lead to larger numbers of erroneous unique sequences generated by misreadings (or mutations).

This result is quite intuitive. It is clear that the more parameters a model has, the better we can fit the model to a given set of data. But, from a practical viewpoint, we are more interested in models with fewer parameters. Statistical Information Criteria allow us to identify the models that provide the best balance between fitting experimental data well and using the fewest number of parameters. , can change at any step of the synthesis process, either by some external change in conditions (like temperature, for instance, which would directly affect the reactivities among nucleotides and, therefore, parameters ri;j , ri;j;k , etc), or by a change in the concentrations of nucleotides in solution, either intentionally or unintentionally (for instance, due to the natural degradation of nucleotides in solution).

This significant difference between the frequencies of the most and least abundant sequences in a pool also plays an important role in determining when we can reasonably assume that all possible 4L unique sequences are present. Assuming there Quantitative Analysis of Synthesized Nucleic Acid Pools 31 is no mutagenesis (for example, via PCR amplification), then if some sequences are initially absent, they cannot be selected upon by any selection experiment, even if they happen to be the best (most functional or selectable) sequences.
