Model selection in the construction of biological networks under the steady-state conditions

The model selection is a decision problem to choose which variables should be included in a statistical model among all plausible models that could be constructed. There are many applications of this problem in different fields from social to mathematical sciences. Here, we particularly deal with the model selection in the construction of the biological networks when the activation of the systems is described under the steady-state condition. The common features of biological networks are their high dimensions, sparsities and interdependences between networks’ components. Due to these challenges, many model selection criteria such as AIC and BIC cannot be successfully applicable in this field. In this study, as the novelty, we suggest ICOMP (information complexity criterion) and its close alternatives, so-called, CAIC and CAICF, in modelling real biological networks with Gaussian graphical model (GGM) and loopbased multivariate adaptive regression splines (LMARS). GGM is one of the common graphical models in systems biology and LMARS is a recently suggested nonparametric model as an alternate of GGM. In our analyses, we initially derive ICOMP, CAIC and CAICF for these two models and then compare their performances with their major criteria, namely, RIC and STARS in GGM and GCV in LMARS.

Evidence Optimization for Consequently Generated Models
Strijov, Vadim; Krymova, Katya; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (2010-12-04)
To construct as adequate regression model one has to fulfill the set of measured features with their generated derivatives. Often the number of these features exceeds the number of the samples in the data set. After a feature generation process the problem of feature selection from a set of highly correlated features arises. The proposed algorithm uses an evidence maximization procedure to select a model as a subset of generated features. During the selection process it rejects multicollinear features. A pr...
Hypothesis testing in one-way classification AR(1) model with Student’s t innovations: An application to a real life data
Yıldırım, Özgecan; Yozgatlıgil, Ceylan; Şenoğlu, Birdal (null; 2017-05-26)
In this study, we estimate the model parameters in one-way classification AR (1) model when the distribution of the error terms is independently and identically distributed (iid) Student’s t. Maximum likelihood (ML) methodology is used in the estimation procedure. We also introduce the F statistic based on the ML estimators of the parameters for testing the equality of the treatment means. See also Yıldırım (2017) (M.S.

Functional Impulses in Exact Stochastic Simulation
Altıntan, Derya; Purutçuoğlu Gazi, Vilda; Uğur, Ömür (2015-08-20)
Jumps which are observed in many population models give rise to fluctuations in the dynamics of systems. Deterministic model which is based on the Impulsive Differential Equations (IDEs) considers these jumps as impulses and defines the dynamics of the system between successive jump times with the Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs). From our previous studies, we have proposed a model which is the complement of IDEs in the sense that both studies consider the jumps as impulses. The main difference betwee...
Modeling of biochemical networks via classification and regression tree methods
Seçilmiş, Deniz; Purutçuoğlu Gazi, Vilda (Springer, 2018-08-01)
In the description of biological networks, a number of modeling approaches has been suggested based on different assumptions. The major problems in these models and their associated inference approaches are the complexity of biological systems, resulting in high number of model parameters, few observations from each variable in the system, their sparse structures, and high correlation between model parameters. From recent studies, it has been seen that the nonparametric methods can ameliorate these challeng...
An adaptive simulated annealing algorithm-based approach for assembly line balancing and a real-life case study
Guden, H.; Meral, Fatma Sedef (2016-05-01)
In this study, we address the deterministic assembly line balancing problem (ALBP) in a multiple product-models environment with multiple objectives. We have been motivated by the assembly line balancing problem of a white goods product production line that is a multi-model type line with 68 stations through which four product-models are assembled, each with approximately 400 precedence relations and 300 tasks. In the plant, to cope with the increasing demand in the medium term, the efficiency of the line i...
