More information about the topic in the subtract below:

Information processing of biological cells is crucial for vital life functions, such as embryonic development, neuronal activity or the functioning of the immune system. One approach to better understand such cell signalling processes is to rebuild chemical networks that process information in vitro. The PEN-DNA reaction system, developed by K. Montagne et al., see Molecular systems biology, 2011, can be used for doing so. This Bachelor thesis theoretically investigates fundamental aspects of the PEN-DNA reaction system. We present a mathematical model for a basic DNA amplification reaction. We discuss the calibration of measurement data from fluorescence measurements of DNA concentration and apply these to a first experimental data set provided by the Tang group (MPI-CBG, Dresden). Finally, we compare the mathematical model of a simple PEN- DNA reaction to a first set of time series data (also provided by the Tang group).
