Physiological Adaptability and Parametric Versatility in a Simple Genetic Circuit

DOI

Welcome to the GitHub repository for the MWC growth project! This repository contains the entire project history as well as curated scripts to make reproducibility feasible.

Branches

This repository consists of three branches -- master, gh-pages, and publication. The master branch is the primary working branch the authors used during the research. It contains all project history, processing data scripts, preliminary figure scripts, and other exploratory data analysis files. The gh-pages brach contains all of the website files including hosting of the interactive figures. Finally, the publication branch (which you are reading this on) contains all final processed data, figure generating scripts, data analysis scripts, and the software module mut. If interested in reproducing the work in this publication, you can execute the scripts on this branch. Please see the individual directories for more information.

Installation

To reproduce this work, you will need to use the mwc module -- a homegrown Python software package written explicitly for this work. The requirements can be installed by executing the following command using pip in the command line:

pip install -r requirements.txt

The software module itself can be installed locally by executing the command in the root directory,

pip install -e ./

When installed, a new folder mut.egg-info will be installed and is necessary to run any of the code.

Repository Architecture

This repository is broken up into several directories and subdirectories. Please see each directory for information regarding each file.

code

The name says it all. This repository contains all code used in this work to analyze data and generate figures. It is broken up into several subdirectories which separate the scripts by function.

  1. analysis | Contains all Python scripts which perform data analysis procedures. This includes parameter inference and calibration of various statistical models.
  2. figures | Contains all Python scripts which perform data visualization procedures. This includes generation all main and supplementary text figures.
  3. stan | Contains all inferential models and associated functions written in the Stan probabilistic programming language.
  4. processing | This folder contains a single script (batch_processing.py) that illustrates how processing of the raw data was performed.

data

This directory contains all processed and simulated data used in this work. The raw image data is stored on the CaltechDATA research data repository under the DOI: 10.22002/D1.1241. This data is approximately 1.8 TB in size and is therefore on cold storage through Caltech DATA. It can be requested via the DOI above, though download will not be instant.

figs

This folder contains .pdf files of all main and supplementary text figures. No code exists in this directory.

mwc

This is the heart-and-soul of the repository. It contains a series of Python files which define the myriad functions used in the processing, analysis, and visualization of data associated with this work. Pleas navigate to the directory to see a description of its contents.
