- T-cell activation network Stephan Klamt
Robustness maintains functionality over perturbations. In gene networks do they move between steady states (can they change attractor), and give different cell type.
Stochasticity can be applied to the nodes or the functions.
Not Probabalistic Boolean Networks - Datta group.
Use Boolean functions AND, OR etc.
Stochasticity in nodes flip the output using a probability distribution.
Kauffman, Willanda etc lots of literature.
Over-represents noise by placing it at the end and not at the inputs/intermediates.
More stochastic the more interaction are involved so allosteric and protein localisation has high noise.
