Sporulation in Bacillus subtilis serves as a model for the development of two different cell types from a single cell. Although much information has been accumulated about the mechanisms that initiate the developmental programmes, important questions remain that can be answered only by quantitative analysis. Here we develop, with the help of existing and new experimental results, a mathematical model that reproduces published in vitro experiments and explains how the activation of the key tra...Expand abstract
