Introduction; Master Equation


I. Sequence nucleic acids in DNA/RNA; amino-acids in proteins information
II. Structure DNA double helix; RNA secondary form; protein folding interactions
III. Function building blocks, force and motion: membranes, tubules, motors… mechanisms
IV. Assembly networks: modules, patterns, collective dynamics… complexity

Evolving Probabilities

  1. Mutating Sequence:
    • Mutations & Classical genetics
    • Binary sequence of independent elements
    • Transition matrix and time dependent evolution
  2. Population Perspective:
    • Master equation for evolving population
    • Steady state (binary distribution)
    • Enzymatic analog
