The booklet introduces to the reader a few leading edge statistical equipment which could e used for the research of genomic, proteomic and metabolomic information units. particularly within the box of structures biology, researchers try to research as many facts as attainable in a given organic method (such as a mobile or an organ). the perfect statistical review of those huge scale info is important for the proper interpretation and varied experimental ways require varied methods for the statistical research of those info. This booklet is written by way of biostatisticians and mathematicians yet aimed as a worthwhile advisor for the experimental researcher in addition computational biologists who frequently lack a suitable history in statistical research.

The dimeric forms of repressor and cro bind to these binding sites to regulate the transcription of genes cI and cro [78, 79, 83]. Biochemical reactions in this system are classified into fast reactions and slow reactions. Fast reactions include two monomer–dimer reactions and binding reactions of ligands to the promoter sites, and they are assumed to be in an equilibrium state. Slow reactions represent transcription and degradation. A complete list of the possible binding configurations and the corresponding free energy of these configurations can be found in [85, 88].

Briefly, Response Net is a flow optimization algorithm that redefines a crucial subnetwork that connects genetic hits (source) and differentially expressed genes (target) from a whole weight network, where each node or edge has been assigned a weight according to their biological importance or confidence. The cost of an edge is defined by the Àlog value of its weight. Thus, the goal of Response Net can be achieved by solving a linear programming optimization problem that minimizes the overall cost of the network when distributing the maximal flow from source to target.
