I am writing a simple model for protein prudcution and have got stuck. My genes have a single promoter and single inhibitor region. I am trying to avoid the need for differential equations by taking small time slices. Over these time slices, I am trying to calculate the amount of protein produced. I can do all of the promoter inhibitor bit, once of got the binding algorithm sorted. As I see it, I need to work out the time between binds and the ammount of time the promoter binds for. This will give me the average production time over some period of time. I know quantites such as ammount of protein present and affinity of the bind, but don't know what to do with them. 250 words is a bit small to explain this :)
