[…] neuroscientists to build, simulate, and visualize large spiking neural networks in a holistic way supporting methods of visual programming. neuralsyns provides a graphical user interface called netbuilder to support network construction, which in turn generates output that can subsequently be processed by the simulation engine. a driving motivation is to build and parameterize complex […]

[…] in the inference of bayesian networks. the inference is performed in three different types of data: (i) synthetic data obtained from a gaussian distribution, (ii) synthetic data simulated with netbuilder and (iii) real data obtained in flow cytometry experiments., bayesian networks with interventions and bayesian networks with inclusion of extra knowledge outperform simple bayesian […]

[…] partitioning mi estimator is a valid alternative for the gaussian kernel estimator. specifically, we constructed 25 synthetic regulatory networks, each with 20 one-to-one gene regulations, using netbuilder []. to compare the network inference performance, we adopt the same metrics as used in []—recall and precision. recall, defined as , where is the number of true positive links […]

[…] or script language interpreter. spinet is composed of two components: a simulation engine, written in c programming language for performance purposes, and spinet network builder tool, or simply netbuilder, written in matlab® for expansibility purposes. the netbuilder tool provides a flexible and efficient graphical interface allowing the user to easily define and set all the main network […]
