From general considerations of the basic physiological properties of the cell division cycle, we deduce what the dynamical properties of the underlying molecular control system must be. Then, taking a few hints from the biochemistry of cyclin-dependent kinases (the master regulators of the eukaryotic cell cycle), we guess what molecular mechanisms must be operating to produce the desired dynamical properties of the control system.
