Abstract: New technologies have allowed for precise measurements of transcription locations in living Drosophila embryos. The ability to track transcription as it happens means that new avenues of exploration become possible. One of these avenues is tracking the random motion of these transcription locations. This paper covers the theoretical background behind random walks and transcription and ultimately analyzes transcription locations in order to create a model for their movement.
