Parameter estimation for Boolean models of biological networks. (English) Zbl 1215.92020
Summary: Boolean networks have long been used as models of molecular networks, and they play an increasingly important role in systems biology. This paper describes a software package, Polynome, offered as a web service, that helps users construct Boolean network models based on experimental data and biological input. The key feature is a discrete analog of parameter estimation for continuous models. With only experimental data as input, the software can be used as a tool for reverse-engineering of Boolean network models from experimental time course data.
