dc.description.abstractRecent experiments are bringing to the fore more and more information about the effects of different treatments on the gene expression of different genes. The results obtained from these experiments show that some definite trends are observed in different genes in the Human Embryonic Kidney and Human Colon Adenocarcinoma Grade II cell lines. The difference in the gene expressions of the two cell lines motivates the problem in this thesis. The thesis provided intervention methods to make the colon cancer cell line genes behave more like their Human Embryonic Kidney cell line counterparts. Two methods of intervention were introduced. The first method was the simpler on-off control intervention while the second method used a more advanced proportional integral control to meet the goal. A comparison of these two intervention methods showed the clear implementational advantages of proportional integral control over on-off control.en
