OBJECTIVE China's food production has increased 6-fold during the past half-century, thanks to increased yields resulting from the management intensification, accomplished through greater inputs of fertilizer, water, new crop strains, and other Green Revolution's technologies. Yet, changes in underlying quality of soils and their effects on yield increase(More)
Gene Regulatory Networks (GRNs) are a useful tool for biologists to understand the interactions among genes in living organisms. A special kind of GRNs known as Logic Networks (LNs) has been recently introduced. These networks consider that the state of one or more genes can influence another one. In a previous work, we proposed a Membrane Computing model(More)
The reverse construction and analysis of the networks of molecular interactions are essential for understanding their functions within cells. In this paper, a logic network model is constructed to investigate the complicated regulation mechanism of shoot genes of Arabidopsis Thaliana in response to stimuli. The dynamics of the complicated logic network is(More)
Many-objective optimization problems refer to problems that hold more than three conflicting objectives, which are more challenging than those with two or three objectives. Membrane computing models, usually termed P systems, are a class of living cell-inspired computing models, which provide a rich framework for solving a variety of challenging problems.(More)
Constructing gene network and analyzing its structure is a basic but important way to discover and understand unknown physiological mechanisms of Arabidopsis subject to external stimuli on both the cellular and molecular levels. Mutual information networks are identified based on gene expression profiles of Arabidopsis in normal condition and subject to(More)
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has two major subtypes: adenocarcinoma (AC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). The diagnosis and treatment of NSCLC are hindered by the limited knowledge about the pathogenesis mechanisms of subtypes of NSCLC. It is necessary to research the molecular mechanisms related with AC and SCC. In this work, we improved the logic(More)
