Next-generation sequencing systems are capable of rapid and cost-effective DNA sequencing, thus enabling routine sequencing tasks and taking us one step closer to personalized medicine. Accuracy and lengths of their reads, however, are yet to surpass those provided by the conventional Sanger sequencing method. This motivates the search for computationally(More)
Gene regulatory networks are highly complex dynamical systems comprising biomolecular components which interact with each other and through those interactions determine gene expression levels, that is, determine the rate of gene transcription. In this paper, a particle filter with Markov Chain Monte Carlo move step is employed for the estimation of reaction(More)
Recent emergence of next-generation DNA sequencing technology has enabled acquisition of genetic information at unprecedented scales. In order to determine the genetic blueprint of an organism, sequencing platforms typically employ so-called shotgun sequencing strategy to oversample the target genome with a library of relatively short overlapping reads. The(More)
Estimation of the amounts of target molecules in real-time affinity-based biosensors is studied. The problem is mapped to inferring the parameters of a temporally sampled diffusion process. To solve it, we rely on a sequential Monte Carlo algorithm which generates particles using transition density of the diffusion process. The transition density is not(More)
