  1. 1. Robust inference of gene regulatory networks : System properties, variable selection, subnetworks, and design of experiments

    Author : Torbjörn E. M. Nordling; Elling W Jacobsen; Rolf Findeisen; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; network inference; reverse engineering; variable selection; model selection; feature selection; subset selection; system identification; system theory; network theory; subnetworks; design of experiments; perturbation experiments; gene regulatory networks; biological networks;

    Abstract : In this thesis, inference of biological networks from in vivo data generated by perturbation experiments is considered, i.e. deduction of causal interactions that exist among the observed variables. Knowledge of such regulatory influences is essential in biology. READ MORE

  2. 2. Novel variable influence on projection (VIP) methods in OPLS, O2PLS, and OnPLS models for single- and multi-block variable selection : VIPOPLS, VIPO2PLS, and MB-VIOP methods

    Author : Beatriz Galindo-Prieto; Johan Trygg; Lennart Eriksson; Paul Geladi; Olav M. Kvalheim; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Variable influence on projection; VIP; MB-VIOP; orthogonal projections to latent structures; OPLS; O2PLS; OnPLS; variable selection; variable importance in multiblock regression; Computer Science; datalogi;

    Abstract : Multivariate and multiblock data analysis involves useful methodologies for analyzing large data sets in chemistry, biology, psychology, economics, sensory science, and industrial processes; among these methodologies, partial least squares (PLS) and orthogonal projections to latent structures (OPLS®) have become popular. Due to the increasingly computerized instrumentation, a data set can consist of thousands of input variables which contain latent information valuable for research and industrial purposes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evolutionary Ecology of Floral Traits in Fragrant Orchids

    Author : Elodie Chapurlat; Nina Sletvold; Jon Ågren; Magne Friberg; Kathleen Kay; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; agents of selection; diurnal and nocturnal pollination; divergent selection; field experiment; floral evolution; floral scent; Gymnadenia conopsea; Gymnadenia densiflora; Orchidaceae; phenotypic selection; pollinator-mediated selection; spatial variation; scent rhythm;

    Abstract : Why are flowers so diverse? Much of floral evolution is thought to be driven by pollinator-mediated selection. However, the connection between macroevolutionary patterns of floral diversity and microevolutionary processes remains poorly understood. In this thesis, I have used the fragrant orchids Gymnadenia conopsea s.s. READ MORE

  4. 4. Statistical Feature Selection : With Applications in Life Science

    Author : Roland Nilsson; Jesper Tegnér; Johan Björkegren; Sepp Hochreiter; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Machine learning; supervised learning; classification; dimemsionality reduction; multiple testing; gene expression; microarray; cancer; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik;

    Abstract : The sequencing of the human genome has changed life science research in many ways. Novel measurement technologies such as microarray expression analysis, genome-wide SNP typing and mass spectrometry are now producing experimental data of extremely high dimensions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Inference and management of populations in variable environments

    Author : Niclas Jonzén; Evolutionär ekologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; habitat selection; environmental variability; Population dynamics; harvesting; time series analysis; model selection; Ecology; Ekologi;

    Abstract : Population dynamics in space and time are manifested as changes in the distribution and abundance of organisms. To couple such patterns to the underlying processes is a central question in ecology and also key to successful management. READ MORE
