FUZZY MUTUAL INFORMATION FOR REVERSE ENGINEERING OF GENE REGULATORY NETWORKS

Silvana Badaloni, Marco Falda, Paolo Massignan, Francesco Sambo

Abstract

The aim of this work is to provide a new definition of Mutual Information using concepts from Fuzzy Sets theory. With this approach, we extended the model on which the well-known REVEAL algorithm for Reverse Engineering of gene regulatory networks is based and we designed a new flexible version of it, called FuzzyReveal. The predictive power of our new version of the algorithm is promising, being comparable with a state-of-the-art algorithm on a set of simulated problems.
