    • Alignment and nonlinear elasticity in biopolymer gels 

      Feng, Jingchen; Levine, Herbert; Mao, Xiaoming; Sander, Leonard M. (2015)
      We present a Landau-type theory for the nonlinear elasticity of biopolymer gels with a part of the order parameter describing induced nematic order of fibers in the gel. We attribute the nonlinear elastic behavior of these ...
    • Modeling delayed processes in biological systems 

      Feng, Jingchen; Sevier, Stuart A.; Huang, Bin; Jia, Dongya; Levine, Herbert (2016)
      Delayed processes are ubiquitous in biological systems and are often characterized by delay differential equations (DDEs) and their extension to include stochastic effects. DDEs do not explicitly incorporate intermediate ...
    • Phenomenological modeling of durotaxis 

      Yu, Guangyuan; Feng, Jingchen; Man, Haoran; Levine, Herbert (2017)
      Cells exhibit qualitatively different behaviors on substrates with different rigidities. The fact that cells are more polarized on the stiffer substrate motivates us to construct a two-dimensional cell with the distribution ...
    • RACIPE: a computational tool for modeling gene regulatory circuits using randomization 

      Huang, Bin; Jia, Dongya; Feng, Jingchen; Levine, Herbert; Onuchic, José N.; Lu, Mingyang (2018)
      BACKGROUND: One of the major challenges in traditional mathematical modeling of gene regulatory circuits is the insufficient knowledge of kinetic parameters. These parameters are often inferred from existing experimental ...
    • Stress-induced plasticity of dynamic collagen networks 

      Kim, Jihan; Feng, Jingchen; Jones, Christopher A.R.; Mao, Xiaoming; Sander, Leonard M.; Levine, Herbert; Sun, Bo (2017)
      The structure and mechanics of tissues is constantly perturbed by endogenous forces originated from cells, and at the same time regulate many important cellular functions such as migration, differentiation, and growth. ...
