Gene Expression Data Analysis Using Fuzzy Logic, Robert Reynolds

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

DNA microarray technology allows for the parallel analysis of the expression of genes in an organism. The wealth of spatio-temporal data provided by the technology allows us to attempt to reverse engineer the genetic network. Fuzzy logic has been proposed as a method of analyzing the relationships between genes as well as their corresponding proteins. Combinations of genes are entered into a fuzzy model of gene interaction and evaluated on the basis of how well the combination fits the model. Those combinations of genes that fit the model are likely to be related. However, current analysis algorithms are slow and ...
