Abstract: 

To study how gene-gene interactions may be controlled, and driven toward particular gene states, an Ising model has been proposed to model genes as binary interacting spins. To determine the effect of ‘clamping’ the states of particular genes requires accounting for the other interactions in the network through the renormalization scheme proposed in this thesis.
