6 Multi-level modeling overview


In this section we will focus on multi-level modelling. So far we have looked at multi-level phenomena, but the modeling was done at a lower level with some predefined fitness criterion and then we looked at how the levels below organize themselves.

Now we will approach multiple levels with a more explicit emphasis on multi-level modeling:
  1. Multi-level modeling: but only single-level behaviour understanding (LAC OPERON)
  2. Multi-level modeling to understand multi-level behaviour (gene regulation and evolution): we know we have a complex genotype-phenotype mapping, so here we increase the mapping.

In this section:
  1. Modeling gene regulaton (lac operon)
    • Monster of Loch Ness syndrome
    • Lac operon evolution (van Hoek)
  2. Genetic pattern formation and modelling morphogenesis (Paulien's critters)
  3. Multi-level modeling (conclusion)
  4. Phenotype first evolution
  5. Positional information (EMPTY)
  6. Turing patterns (EMPTY)
  7. Dyctostelium life-cycle (EMPTY)
  8. Polyspondilium discoideum (EMPTY)
  9. Who wants to become a stalk (EMPTY)
