E. coli gene regulatory networks are inconsistent with gene expression data

This publication, co-authored by Profs. Harald Schmidt and Jan Baumbach and to be published in Nucleic Acids Research, challenges established knowledge of the systemic biology on the cellular level, finding no system-wide correlation between the expression of transcription factors and their target genes in E. coli. More sophisticated network models are needed, with higher complexity and more dynamic features, to truly understand how gene expression is regulated. The preprint version of the paper can be accessed here.
