[…] there are no oscillations and the positive circuit wip1/p53/mir16 dominates the cell fate process., in we present an estimate of the probabilities of each phenotype for the wild-type case using the avatar algorithm (exact exit probabilities) in ginsim with 750 runs. the other parameters of the algorithm were set to the default values. the algorithm performs an exhaustive search in the state […]

[…] figure ). hence a htg provides an informative view of the dynamics in terms of attractors and their basins of attraction., to quantify attractor reachability, mendes et al. () presented avatar, a monte carlo simulation algorithm adapted to speed up exit from transient cycles and to identify complex attractors if those are not known beforehand. avatar allows to estimate […]
