Circadian Control of the Cell Cycle
Why are cells dividing with different cell-cycle times? Noise?
Actually, a determinstic non linear control of the circadian clock generates variability in Cyanobacteria. Deleting the clock genes decreases the variability.
This work extends presents a more detailed mathematical model, and extension to different cell types (E.coli, Corynebacterium, Cyanobacteria) of our previous work distinguishing between noise and determinism in the cell-cycle of lymphocytes.
