Bayesian Model Calibration and Sensitivity Analysis for Oscillating Biological Experiments

  title={Bayesian Model Calibration and Sensitivity Analysis for Oscillating Biological Experiments},
  author={Youngdeok Hwang and Hang J. Kim and Won Chang and Christian I. Hong and Steven N. MacEachern},
Most organisms exhibit various endogenous oscillating behaviors which provide crucial information as to how the internal biochemical processes are connected and regulated. Understanding the molecular mechanisms behind these oscillators requires interdisciplinary efforts combining both biological and computer experiments, as the latter can complement the former by simulating perturbed conditions with higher resolution. Harmonizing the two types of experiment, however, poses significant…

Robustness and period sensitivity analysis of minimal models for biochemical oscillators
It is demonstrated that robustness has to be comprehensively assessed with both parameter sensitivity analysis and stochastic simulations and systems with autocatalytic positive feedback loop are shown to be more robust than those with positive feedback via inhibitory degradation regardless of noise type.
The Generalized Multiset Sampler
The multiset sampler, an MCMC algorithm recently proposed by Leman and coauthors, is an easy-to-implement algorithm which is especially well-suited to drawing samples from a multimodal distribution.
Bayesian Calibration of computer models
We consider prediction and uncertainty analysis for systems which are approximated using complex mathematical models. Such models, implemented as computer codes, are often generic in the sense that
The Multiset Sampler
We introduce the multiset sampler (MSS), a new Metropolis–Hastings algorithm for drawing samples from a posterior distribution. The MSS is designed to be effective when the posterior has the feature
Computer Model Calibration Using High-Dimensional Output
This work focuses on combining observations from field experiments with detailed computer simulations of a physical process to carry out statistical inference. Of particular interest here is

Calibration for Computer Experiments With Binary Responses and Application to Cell Adhesion Study
A new calibration framework for binary responses is proposed for T cell adhesion experiments, which provides insight into the unknown values of the kinetic parameters which are difficult to determine by physical experiments due to the limitation of the existing experimental techniques.
FRQ-CK1 interaction determines the period of circadian rhythms in Neurospora
It is shown that the interaction between proteins FRQ and CK1, rather than FRQ stability, is a major rate-limiting step in circadian period determination in the model fungus Neurospora.
An Efficient Surrogate Model for Emulation and Physics Extraction of Large Eddy Simulations
ABSTRACT In the quest for advanced propulsion and power-generation systems, high-fidelity simulations are too computationally expensive to survey the desired design space, and a new design
