报告摘要

Systems biology faces the challenge of extracting meaningful biological insights from ever more detailed quantitative data which elucidate the collective inner workings of the dynamics and steady-state properties of cells, tissues, organisms and populations at the systems level. Kinetic rate equation network models, formulated in terms of systems of coupled ordinary differential equations (ODEs) or partial differential equations (PDEs), provide us, in principle, with a powerful mathematical “microscope” that allows us to “see” the new biology that is hidden in such quantitative data.


Yet, despite massive data set sizes, the available biological data are still noisy and incomplete, while unknown ODE or PDE model parameters are plentiful and hence often poorly constrained by the data. As a consequence, we are presented with the profound difficulty of making reliable quantitative model predictions in the face of substantial parametric uncertainties. The ensemble network simulation (ENS) methodology was developed  to deal with this parametric uncertainty problem by way of a Monte Carlo-based probabilistic exploration of the entire high-dimensional model parameter space.


In this talk, I will give an introduction to the ENS approach in the context of ODE models describing the time evolution and steady-state properties of biological circuits. Applications of the ENS approach to gene regulatory and metabolic systems will be explored. Time permitting, I will also discuss extensions of the ENS method to extract information about biological circuit topologies, i.e., about the connectivity of unknown biological pathways, from biological time series data on metabolic and gene regulatory circuits.
