A Study of Particle Swarm Optimization in Gene Regulatory Networks Inference
Gene regulatory inference from time series gene expression data, generated from DNA microarray, has become increasingly important in investigating genes functions and unveiling fundamental cellular processes. Computational methods in machine learning and neural networks play an active role in analyzing the obtained data. Here, we investigate the performance of particle swarm optimization (PSO) on the reconstruction of gene networks, which is modeled with recurrent neural networks (RNN). The experimental results on a synthetic data set are presented to show the parameter effects of PSO on RNN training and the effectiveness of the proposed method in revealing the gene relations.
