Gene regulatory systems are complex biological systems accounting for gene expression. Like many complex systems, they are subject to inherent noise as well as external perturbations posing a threat to their robust functionality. We review different types and sources of noise in the context of gene regulatory systems as well as different mechanisms that such systems have adopted to effectively deal with this deficiency. In so doing we consider whether there might be some link between how certain structural and architectural properties might have evolved due to a system's requirement to function under noise.
