Learning gene regulatory networks in Arabidopsis Thaliana

Learning gene regulatory networks in Arabidopsis Thaliana

This video was recorded at Workshop on Probabilistic Modelling of Networks and Pathways, Sheffield 2007. Gene regulatory networks govern the functional development and biological processes of cells in all organisms. Genes regulate each other as part of a complex system, of which it is vitally important to gain an understanding. For example, discovery of the complete gene regulatory networks in humans would allow the identification of genes which cause disease, and could be used for drug discovery to identify genes interacting with compounds of interest. Similarly in plants knowledge of the gene regulatory networks would allow the development of stress (drought/salt/temperature) resistant crops. Learning large gene regulatory networks with thousands of genes with any certainty from... Show More
