MOTIVATION The nematode C. elegans is an ideal model organism in which to investigate the biomolecular mechanisms underlying the connectivity of neurons, because synaptic connections are described in a comprehensive wiring diagram and methods for defining gene expression profiles of individual neurons are now available. RESULTS Here we present computational techniques linking these two types of information. A systems-based approach (EMBP: Entropy Minimization and Boolean Parsimony) identifies… CONTINUE READING
