Inferring Broad Regulatory Biology from Time Course Data: Have We Reached an Upper Bound under Constraints Typical of In Vivo Studies?

PLoS One
PMCID: 4435750
PMID: 25984725
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0127364

[…] probability distributions. Dynamic Bayesian networks (DBN) offer further improvements in the analysis of experimental time course data [] and several algorithms have been proposed including BANJO [] BNFINDER [,], GlobalMIT [], and DREM [, ]. While DBNs can infer feedback loops they continue to require data exceeding that of typical in vivo animal studies despite efforts to control computational c […]
