New Algorithms for Host Pathogen Systems Biology (SYSPATHO)

SYSPATHO focuses on the development of novel and generally applicable mathematical methods and algorithms for systems biology. These methods and algorithms will be applied to study the complex interactions of hepatitis C virus (HCV), a human-pathogenic virus of high medical relevance, with its host at the systems level. Using a multidisciplinary, integrative approach, PATHOSYS will (a) develop methods to analyze and integrate a wide variety of data from wet lab experiments, databases and biological literature, (b) develop and apply machine learning tools to reconstruct and study intracellular interaction networks from experimental data, (c) develop new and improve existing algorithms and mathematical methods for bottom-up modelling, to fit models to data, and to analyze the dynamic behaviour of models (d) generate new experimental data to gain novel insights into hepatitis C virus host interactions, and (e) use the newly developed methods and data to model and analyze HCV-host interactions at the systems level. Guided by biological data, PATHOSYS focuses on the design of novel algorithms and mathematical methods for systems biology, with the aim to provide generally applicable tools to elucidate biological processes. Based on developed models and using systems analysis, PATHOSYS will elucidate virus host interactions of Hepatitis C virus at an unprecedented level. As a direct spin-off, models and analysis methods developed in PATHOSYS will lead to the identification of new candidate host cell target genes applicable for the design of novel anti-viral drugs against hepatitis C. Targeting of host cell factors will reduce the likelihood for the development of therapy resistance and increase the chance for broad-spectrum antivirals. Inclusion of two SME partners will ensure exploitation of results generated in PATHOSYS and their transfer into industrial and pharmaceutical applications, thus strengthening economy and health care system in Europe.


A pattern classification approach for boosting with genetic algorithms
Yalabık, Ismet; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Üçoluk, Göktürk; Şehitoğlu, Onur Tolga (2007-11-09)
Ensemble learning is a multiple-classifier machine learning approach which produces collections and ensembles statistical classifiers to build up more accurate classifier than the individual classifiers. Bagging, boosting and voting methods are the basic examples of ensemble learning. In this study, a novel boosting technique targeting to solve partial problems of AdaBoost, a well-known boosting algorithm, is proposed. The proposed system finds an elegant way of boosting a bunch of classifiers successively ...
A deep learning approach for the transonic flow field predictions around airfoils
Duru, Cihat; Alemdar, Hande; Baran, Özgür Uğraş (2022-01-01)
Learning from data offers new opportunities for developing computational methods in research fields, such as fluid dynamics, which constantly accumulate a large amount of data. This study presents a deep learning approach for the transonic flow field predictions around airfoils. The physics of transonic flow is integrated into the neural network model by utilizing Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS) simulations. A detailed investigation on the performance of the model is made both qualitatively and quant...
Various parameter estimation techniques for stochastic differential equations
Ergişi, Semi; Vardar Acar, Ceren; Department of Statistics (2019)
Dynamic systems appear in many fields from economics to physics, from biology toengineering include randomness. Therefore, stochastic differential equations are oneof the necessary mathematical tools to model dynamic systems in these disciplines.In this study, we propose two parameter estimation methods when modelling withSDEs which are driven by Brownian motion. Maximum likelihood estimation andgeneralized method of moment techniques are used to estimate parameters and it isobtained that when the assumptio...

Erden, Zühal; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Erden, Abdülkadir (1998-09-11)
This paper introduces the completed part of an ongoing research, in which a Petri Net-based design inference network is developed for the representation and analysis of the functions and their interrelationships through information flow for the conceptual design stage of mechatronic systems in order to facilitate design automation. The theoretical framework behind the network is based on transition of Hybrid Automata into Petri Nets and application of this framework is introduced by a mechatronic design exa...
