In this paper, we introduce a method based on recommendation systems to predict the structure of Gene Regulatory Networks (GRNs) making use of data from multiple sources. Our method is based on collaborative filtering approach enhanced with multiple criteria to predict the relationships of genes, i.e., which genes regulate others. We conduct experiments on two data sets to demonstrate the applicability and sustainability of our proposal. The first data set is composed of microarray data and Transcription Factor (TF) binding data, and it is evaluated by precision, recall and the F1-measure. The second data set is the Dream4 In Silico Network Challenge data set, and it is evaluated by the measures that are used during the challenge, namely the Area Under Precision and Recall curve (AUC-PR), the Area Under the Receiver Operating Characteristic curve (AUC-ROC) and their averages. The experimental results show that applying algorithms from the recommendation systems domain on the problem of inference of GRN structures is effective. Also, we observed that combining information from multiple data sets gives better results.

Robust optimization in spline regression models for multi-model regulatory networks under polyhedral uncertainty
Ozmen, Ayse; Kropat, Erik; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (2017-01-01)
In our study, we integrate the data uncertainty of real-world models into our regulatory systems and robustify them. We newly introduce and analyse robust time-discrete target-environment regulatory systems under polyhedral uncertainty through robust optimization. Robust optimization has reached a great importance as a modelling framework for immunizing against parametric uncertainties and the integration of uncertain data is of considerable importance for the model's reliability of a highly interconnected ...
Multi-objective decision making using fuzzy discrete event systems: A mobile robot example
Boutalis, Yiannis; Schmidt, Klaus Verner (2010-09-29)
In this paper, we propose an approach for the multi-objective control of sampled data systems that can be modeled as fuzzy discrete event systems (FDES). In our work, the choice of a fuzzy system representation is justified by the assumption of a controller realization that depends on various potentially imprecise sensor measurements. Our approach consists of three basic steps that are performed in each sampling instant. First, the current fuzzy state of the system is determined by a sensor evaluation. Seco...
Hybrid Approach for Mobile Couriers Election in Smart-cities
Al-Turjman, Fadi (2016-11-10)
In this paper we propose a hybrid heuristic approach for public data delivery under ultra-large-scale smart-city settings. In this approach, public transportation vehicles are going into election process to be utilized as Mobile Couriers (MCs) that read public Access Points (APs) data loads and relay it back to a central processing base-station. We also introduce a cost-based fitness function for the MCs election in the smart-city project which forms a real implementation for the Internet of Things (IoT) pa...
Computational platform for predicting lifetime system reliability profiles for different structure types in a network
Akgül, Ferhat (2004-01-01)
This paper presents a computational platform for predicting the lifetime system reliability profiles for different structure types located in an existing network. The computational platform has the capability to incorporate time-variant live load and resistance models. Following a review of the theoretical basis, the overall architecture of the computational platform is described. Finally, numerical examples of three existing bridges (i.e., a steel, a prestressed concrete, and a hybrid steel-concrete bridge...
