IGSB Faculty member Jack Gilbert co-founded Gusto Global to better understand microorganisms inside humans and harness them to treat disease.
On the cover of the December Cell Systems issue, IGSB Faculty member Savas Tay, and others, observe that when NF-κB oscillations are entrained by periodic tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inputs in experiments, NF-κB exhibits jumps between frequency modes, a phenomenon called “cellular mode-hopping.” By comparing stochastic simulations of NF-κB oscillations to deterministic simulations conducted inside and outside the chaotic regime of parameter space, they show that noise facilitates mode-hopping in all regimes.
