DCI: Learning Causal Differences between Gene Regulatory Networks [article]

Anastasiya Belyaeva, Chandler Squires, Caroline Uhler
2020 bioRxiv   pre-print
Here, we propose an algorithm that efficiently learns the differences in gene regulatory mechanisms between different conditions.  ...  AbstractSummaryDesigning interventions to control gene regulation necessitates modeling a gene regulatory network by a causal graph.  ...  We address this problem by noting that it is often of interest to learn changes in causal (regulatory) relationships between two related gene regulatory networks corresponding to different conditions,  ...
