Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

In recent work published in Nature, Raj et al. (2010) use single mRNA molecule quantification to show that variation in gene expression in Caenorhabditis elegans increases in mutants displaying incomplete penetrance. They find that a bimodal response is triggered when noisy expression of an upstream regulator crosses a critical threshold.
