Abstract
We introduce a methodological framework based on the concepts of
safety and optimality to interpret organismal strategies that are intrinsically
related to survival behaviors. We focus on the production of the antibiotic
subtilin by the bacterium Bacillus subtilis, which is one among a set of pos-
sible responses to environmental stress that are elicited by the bacterium,
and we investigate the activation strategies over the genes involved in the
process. We argue that these activation strategies can be synthesized as the
