Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Switch-like phenomena within biological systems complicate the inference of gene regulatory networks. In this case, the difficulty comes from the fact that the model cannot be inferred from the mixed unknown contexts directly. It is necessary to identify the dasiapurepsila contexts from the data and given a dasiapurepsila context, subsequently infer a model. In this paper, a wavelet-based approach is addressed for the efficient partitioning of data into different biological contexts. The wavelet transform is a well known tool from the signal processing domain. This approach is able to identify the switches in the various conditions, with much lower computational cost than existing techniques. In order to demonstrate the proposed algorithm, experiments on the basis of simulated sequences and a synthetic sequence derived from real gene networks have been performed.
