[…] that cause a desired effect on the long-term behavior of the system., there are various tools and frameworks to model, simulate or visualize different types of boolean networks. the r-package boolnet comprises a number of simulation algorithms, for instance, attractor search, network perturbation or robustness analysis for synchronous, asynchronous, and probabilistic boolean networks […]

[…] collecting literature data. modeling of the network functions was performed using visibool []. the exhaustive attractor search simulation to analyze the network was carried out with the r-package boolnet []., to further analyze the effects of igf/wnt crosstalk in our network model, we divided the model in its igf and wnt sub-networks. therefore, we removed the crosstalk elements […]

[…] are already several tools for boolean modeling of regulatory networks in which it is possible to define direct activation-inhibition relationships between the components of the network, such as boolnet r [] or ginsim []. more recently, the r package spiddor (systems pharmacology for efficient drug development on r) among others, has implemented new types of regulatory interactions […]

[…] previously, several tools have been developed for construction,, visualization, and analyses, of logical networks. from amongst them, the leading tools for computing attractor states include boolnet, the cell collective and cellnetanalyzer. however, these tools fail to associate biologically relevant network states with emergent cell fates. it is the lack of this functionality […]

[…] the oscillations generated due to impulse of iptg at 24 hour time point at a concentration of 1 mm (fig. ).figure 3, the time series data generated in berkeley madonna was further analyzed in r boolnet package, which shows that the system has two attractor states, i.e. either on or off state. attractor states suggest the stable gene expression pattern of the boolean network. this system […]
