Reverse engineering time-varying gene regulatory networks

Reverse-engineering of gene regulatory networks has conventionally adopted static topology models. These models are largely based on the assumption that the underlying molecular interactions of biological systems do not change over time. However, it has become clear that such assumptions do not provide a vivid description of biological interactions that are affected by physiological and environmental factors during the life cycle of organisms. Modelling the dynamics of these ever-changing and evolving gene networks is an arduous engineering task. I seek to formulate a time varying model that captures the dynamics of gene networks for improved medical diagnosis and targeted drug delivery.
