Molecular biology has always shown some similarities with computer science. So, considering transient expression, one can see an analogy with a DDoS attack on a computing system. Like the DDoS attack, transient expression can carry a payload. In particular, analysis of the structure of cell mechanisms and signal amplification in the study of very subtle mechanisms of regulation.
A new vector system for transient expression in plants is described; this system is intended for quantitative analysis of the contribution of regulatory elements to transcription and translation efficiencies. The proposed vector comprises two expression cassettes carrying reporter genes (of the Clostridium thermocellum thermostable lichenase and E. coli
