An Equation to Describe the Competition Between Genes

Caption: The background images show cells that have been repressed to different extents. Red fluorescence corresponds to the "repressor" transcription factors that turn off the genes that produce the green fluorescent protein. The two graphs in the foreground show the level of green fluorescent protein produced as a function of the level of repressor.
