Stochastic simulation of large biochemical systems by approximate Gillespie algorithm

In recent years the fast innovations for the development of new methods and algorithms in system biology enable the biologists to analyze and interpret the complex biochemical structures. One of the speedy development has been seen in mathematical methods for generating these complex systems on the computer. These techniques help the researcher to ask biologically interesting questions and test their expectations before starting their biological experiments. There are a number of methods which can approximately simulate the biochemical systems in a computationally efficient way. In this study we present two applications of a recently developed simulation technique, called the approximate Gillespie, for approximately producing large systems with realistic complexity. We evaluate the performance of the new algorithm by comparing its simulation results with the ones generated from the well-known exact simulation technique, namely the Gillespie method.

Stochastic analysis and adaptive control studies in legged systems
Er, Güner Dilşad; Ankaralı, Mustafa Mert; Saranlı, Uluç; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-6-7)
Underactuated legged robots depict highly nonlinear and complex dynamical behaviors that create significant challenges in accurately modeling system dynamics using both first principles and system identification approaches. Hence, the design of stabilizing controllers becomes more challenging due to inaccurate modeling. Suppose physical parameters on mathematical models have miscalibrations due to uncertainty in identifying and modeling processes. In that case, designed controllers could perform poorly or e...
An algorithmic approach to analyse genetic networks and biological energy production: an introduction and contribution where OR meets biology
Uğur, Ömür; WEBER, G. -W.; WUENSCHIERS, R. (2009-01-01)
An emerging research area in computational biology and biotechnology is devoted to modelling and prediction of gene-expression patterns. In this article, after a short review of recent achievements we deepen and extend them, especially, by emphasizing and analysing the elegant means of matrix algebra. Based on experimental data, ordinary differential equations with nonlinearities on the right-hand side and a generalized treatment of the absolute shift term, representing the environmental effects, are invest...
On generalized semi-infinite optimization of genetic networks
Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; Tezel, Aysun (2007-07-01)
Since some years, the emerging area of computational biology is looking for its mathematical foundations. Based on modem contributions given to this area, our paper approaches modeling and prediction of gene-expression patterns by optimization theory, with a special emphasis on generalized semi-infinite optimization. Based on experimental data, nonlinear ordinary differential equations are obtained by the optimization of least-squares errors. The genetic process can be investigated by a time-discretization ...

Dedekargınoğlu, Özgür; Hasançebi, Oğuzhan; Department of Civil Engineering (2012)
The objective of this study is to investigate the use and efficiency of Differential Evolution (DE) method on structural optimization. The solution algorithm developed with DE is computerized into software called SOP2011 using VB.NET. SOP2011 is automated to achieve size optimum design of steel structures consisting of 1-D elements such as trusses and frames subjected to design provisions according to ASD-AISC (2010) and LRFD-AISC (2010). SOP2011 works simultaneously with the structural analysis and design ...
Classical analysis of time behavior of radiation fields associated with biophoton signals
Choi, Jeong Ryeol; Kim, Daeyeoul; Menouar, Salah; Sever, Ramazan; Abdalla, M. Sebawe (2016-01-01)
BACKGROUND: Propagation of photon signals in biological systems, such as neurons, accompanies the production of biophotons. The role of biophotons in a cell deserves special attention because it can be applied to diverse optical systems.
