Cell Cycle Modeling, Stochastic Methods
Stochastic methods of modeling include randomness as a way to represent the occurrence of events that, because of their very nature or due to practical impossibilities, can only be predicted in probabilistic terms. Thus, the diffusion of molecules through a membrane, the dynamic instability of microtubules, and the spontaneous switch from the non-lytic to the lytic behavior of the λ-phage can all be modeled as stochastic processes.
Stochasticity at cell division time. The elements of randomness considered are those related to the process of cell division, which is the asymmetric division of cells...
