Abstract : This project aims to develop new concepts, theory, and algorithms for control and signal processing using ideas inspired by molecular systems biology. Cell biology provides a wide repertoire of systems that are strongly fault-tolerant, nonlinear, feedback-rich, and truly hybrid, while making effective use of highly heterogeneous sensing and actuation channels. Advances in genomic/proteomics and molecular systems biology research are continually adding detailed knowledge of such systems' architecture and operation, thus offering, in principle, a powerful source of inspiration for innovative solutions to problems of control and communication, sensor and actuator design, and systems integration.
