However, as large numbers of TF-target interactions become available, using these prior known interactions is likely to improve prediction accuracy.
In one of the most recent and largest comparisons of GRN inference methods (Maetschke et al., 2014), 17 unsupervised methods were compared with a supervised method—the support vector machine (SVM)—in three different experimental conditions using both simulated and experimental data sets. doi: 10.3389/fpls.2016.01936 © 2016 Ni, Aghamirzaie, Elmarakeby, Collakova, Li, Grene and Heath.
Given r as the regulator and n target genes t) belong to two classes 1 and −1.
Gene regulatory networks (GRNs) provide a representation of relationships between regulators and their target genes.
Several methods for GRN inference, both unsupervised and supervised, have been developed to date.
Early computational work used unsupervised approaches, such as weighted gene correlation network analysis (WGCNA) (Langfelder and Horvath, 2008), the context likelihood of relatedness algorithm (CLR; Faith et al., 2007), or trustful inference of gene regulation using stability selection (TIGRESS; Haury et al., 2012).
These methods predict networks exclusively from expression data, and they can be used when gene regulation information is limited.
The first way of constructing x is to directly concatenate the expression data of regulator and target: x = (e(r, which belongs to the local approach because each regulator is treated as a separate SVM. Plant hormone-mediated regulation of stress responses.
The kernel function is a fundamental component of an SVM algorithm. doi: 10.1146/annurev-arplant-050312-120215 Pub Med Abstract | Cross Ref Full Text | Google Scholar Verma, V., Ravindran, P., and Kumar, P. These methods are applied to gene expression data from yeast and humans, as well as synthetic benchmark data.I also look at data artifacts present in big data in biology and propose a model-based clustering method for addressing these issues and correcting the data and show how the improved data lead to improved subsequent analysis.Potential TF target relationships can be identified by using chromatin immunoprecipitation with DNA microarray (Ch IP-chip; Junker et al., 2010), Ch IP-sequencing (Park, 2009), or protein-binding microarrays (Berger and Bulyk, 2009).However, these wet-lab experiments are technically challenging, financially demanding, and time consuming (Penfold and Wild, 2011).Inference through computational methods is convenient, and there are various ways to validate the results (Schrynemackers et al., 2014; Patel and Wang, 2015).
