This chapter discusses the plasticity of gene regulation. It presents an experimental model that demonstrates the adaptive dynamics of rewired cells and the growth patterns of cell populations during the adaptive process. The chapter also discusses the global transcriptional responses in adaptation and the role played by genetics and epigenetics in cellular plasticity.

Keywords:   plasticity, gene regulation, adaptive dynamics, rewired cells, adaptation, genetics, epigenetics, cellular plasticity
