Dealing with Discontinuities in the Qualitative Simulation of Genetic Regulatory Networks

Hidde de Jong, Jean-Luc GouzÚ, CÚline Hernandez, Michel Page, Tewfik Sari, Hans Geiselmann

Methods developed for the qualitative simulation of dynamical systems have turned out to be powerful tools for studying genetic regulatory networks. We present a generalization of a simulation method based on piecewise-linear differential equation models that is able to deal with discontinuities. The method is sound and has been implemented in a computer tool called GNA.

Keywords: Qualitative Reasoning, Bioinformatics, model-based reasoning
