Haiqing Xu defends his dissertation

Although the expression stochasticity of an individual gene is unavoidable, clustering of genes promotes the synchronization of their expression fluctuation. This phenomenon provides a fitness benefit when the expression ratio of the clustered genes needs to stay constant, for example, because of the accumulation of toxic compounds when this ratio is altered.
