• There are more than 2.5 million cancer patients in India at any given time, of which the frequency of breast and ovarian cancer cases has increased. Although there are many possible reasons, reversible phosphorylation of proteins, mediated by receptor tyrosine kinases (RTK) such as VEGF and HER2/neu receptors play a crucial role on different cellular processes associated with cancer pathogenesis.

  • The dynamics of spatially structured populations (metapopulations) have been widely studied over the last few decades. For the sake of simplicity, most of these studies assume that all the constituent local populations (subpopulations) experience similar rates of migration (immigration and emigration). Although it is intuitively obvious that nothing in nature constrains the migration rates to be symmetric, i.e.
