Transient transfection can make the dynamics of the cells highly variable, so predicting the behaviors of transfected circuits can be a major challenge. In this work, we provide a precise definition of genetic modules, from which we then develop a method of composition that allows model-based design of circuits in transiently transfected mammalian cells. For validation, we apply our method to cascades consisting of two regulatory switches. Predictions of the mathematical models compare well with the experimental data. Our findings suggest reducing batch effects and selecting a proper model both contribute to improving model predictions.
