Flux Calculator

The lab has developed online calculators that allow for the direct testing of mechanistic hypotheses by calculating the steady-state transcript flux in the presence and absence of a factor as a function of initiation rate constants. By evaluating how the flux ratio of a single kinetic mechanism varies across promoter space, quantitative insights into the potential of a mechanism to generate promoter-specific regulatory outcomes can be obtained.
