Dynamic information handling in continuous time Boolean Network model of gene interactions

Öktem, Hakan
Growing information and knowledge on gene regulatory networks, which are typical hybrid systems, has led a significant interest in modeling those networks. An important direction of gene network modeling is studying the abstract network models to understand the behavior of a class of systems. Boolean Networks has emerged as an important model class on this direction. Limitations of traditional Boolean Networks led the researchers to propose several generalizations. In this work, one such class, the Continuous Time Boolean Networks (CTBN's), is studied. CTBN's are constructed by allowing the Boolean variables evolve in continuous time and involve a biologically-motivated refractory period. In particular, we analyze the basic circuits and subsystems of the class of CTBN's. We demonstrate the existence of various qualitative dynamic behavior including stable, multistable, neutrally stable, quasiperiodic and chaotic behaviors. We show that those models are capable of demonstrating highly adjustable features like maintenance of continuous protein concentrations. Finally, we discuss the relation between qualitative dynamic features and information handling.


Automated Large-Scale Control of Gene Regulatory Networks
Tan, Mehmet; Alhajj, Reda; Polat, Faruk (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-04-01)
Controlling gene regulatory networks (GRNs) is an important and hard problem. As it is the case in all control problems, the curse of dimensionality is the main issue in real applications. It is possible that hundreds of genes may regulate one biological activity in an organism; this implies a huge state space, even in the case of Boolean models. This is also evident in the literature that shows that only models of small portions of the genome could be used in control applications. In this paper, we empower...
Big data maturity models for the public sector: a review of state and organizational level models
OKUYUCU, ARAS; Yavuz, Nilay (Emerald, 2020-07-01)
Purpose Despite several big data maturity models developed for businesses, assessment of big data maturity in the public sector is an under-explored yet important area. Accordingly, the purpose of this study is to identify the big data maturity models developed specifically for the public sector and evaluate two major big data maturity models in that respect: one at the state level and the other at the organizational level. Design/methodology/approach A literature search is conducted using Web of Science an...
Reconfigurability of behavioural specifications for manufacturing systems
Schmidt, Klaus Verner (Informa UK Limited, 2017-01-01)
Reconfigurable manufacturing systems (RMS) support flexibility in the product variety and the configuration of the manufacturing system itself in order to enable quick adjustments to new products and production requirements. As a consequence, an essential feature of RMS is their ability to rapidly modify the control strategy during run-time. In this paper, the particular problem of changing the specified operation of a RMS, whose logical behaviour is modelled as a finite state automaton, is addressed. The n...
IFOOD: An intelligent fuzzy object-oriented database architecture
Koyuncu, M; Yazıcı, Adnan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2003-09-01)
Next generation information system applications require powerful and intelligent information management that necessitates an efficient interaction between database and knowledge base technologies. It is also important for these applications to incorporate uncertainty in data objects, in integrity constraints, and/or in application. In this study, we propose an intelligent object-oriented database architecture, IFOOD, which permits the flexible modeling and querying of complex data and knowledge including un...
On the performance, availability and energy consumption modelling of clustered IoT systems
Ever, Enver; Shah, Purav; Mostarda, Leonardo; Omondi, Fredrick; Gemikonakli, Orhan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-12-01)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) form a large part of the ecosystem of the Internet of Things (IoT), hence they have numerous application domains with varying performance and availability requirements. Limited resources that include processing capability, queue capacity, and available energy in addition to frequent node and link failures degrade the performance and availability of these networks. In an attempt to efficiently utilise the limited resources and to maintain the reliable network with efficient da...
