Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

We propose a modeling approach based on Probabilistic Boolean Networks for the inference of genetic regulatory networks from gene expression time-course data in different biological conditions i.e. making use of the information contained in sets of genes and the interaction between genes rather than single-gene analyses. This model is a collection of traditional Probabilistic Boolean Networks. We also present an approach which is based on constrained prediction and Coefficient of Determination (COD) for the identification of the model from gene expression data. The modeling approach is applied in the context of pathway biology to the analysis of gene interaction networks.
