robustness

Monday 4 October 2004

Examples

- developmental robustness

  • Morphogen gradients play a pivotal role in most phases of developmental patterning.
  • To ensure proper patterning, reproducible gradients are established under diverse environmental conditions and genetic backgrounds.
  • Buffer fluctuations in gene dosage or environmental conditions are reffered as ’robustness’.
