Barycentric Algebras and Gene Expression
- Anna Romanowska,

Barycentric algebras have seen widespread application in the modeling of convex sets, semilattices, and quantum mechanics. Recently, they were developed further to encompass Boolean logic and if-then-else algebras. This paper discusses an application of barycentric algebras to systems biology. Here, they provide a calculus for the conversion from simplified Boolean models of gene transcription to fuzzy models that give a more realistic tracking of the biochemistry. Indeed, it appears that logic gates experimentally observed in cells actually follow the barycentric algebra format.
