— In this work we examined the performance of two evolutionary algorithms, a genetic algorithm (GA) and particle swarm optimization (PSO), in the estimation of the parameters of a model for the growth kinetics of the yeast Debaryomyces hansenii. Fitting the model's predictions simultaneously to three replicates of the same experiment, we used the(More)
In this study we address the problem of finding a quantitative mathematical model for the genetic network regulating the stress response of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae to the agricultural fungicide mancozeb. An S-system formalism was used to model the interactions of a five-gene network encoding four transcription factors (Yap1, Yrr1, Rpn4 and Pdr3)(More)
