  "abstract": "<p><strong>Abstract</strong></p>\n\n<p>We study both&nbsp;<em>in silico</em>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<em>in vivo</em>&nbsp;the real-time feedback control of a molecular titration motif that has been earmarked as a fundamental component of antithetic and multicellular feedback control schemes in&nbsp;<em>E.&nbsp;coli</em>. We show that an external feedback control strategy can successfully regulate the average fluorescence output of a bacterial cell population to a desired constant level in real-time. We also provide&nbsp;<em>in silico</em>&nbsp;evidence that the same strategy can be used to track a time-varying reference signal where the set-point is switched to a different value halfway through the experiment. We use the experimental data to refine and parametrize an&nbsp;<em>in silico</em>&nbsp;model of the motif that can be used as an error computation module in future embedded or multicellular control experiments.</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n\n<ul>\n</ul>",
