Continuous-time Markov chain (CTMC) models have become a central tool for understanding the dynamics of complex reaction networks and the importance of stochasticity in the underlying biochemical processes. When such models are employed to answer questions in applications, in order to ensure that the model provides a sufficiently accurate representation of the real system, it is of vital importance that the model parameters are inferred from real measured data. This, however, is often a…

Moment Fitting for Parameter Inference in Repeatedly and Partially Observed Stochastic Biological Models
The potential of moment fitting for parameter inference by means of illustrative stochastic biological models from the literature is demonstrated and both deterministic and stochastics parameter inference algorithms are improved with respect to accuracy and efficiency.

It is shown that the result that less moments provide more information can only stem from an unnecessarily complicated description of the system in the classical formulation, and a symbolic algorithm is provided that can be used to derive minimal systems of unconditional moment equations for models with partially finite state space.
Lognormal Moment Closures for Biochemical Reactions
Striking features of these moment closure functions are that they are independent of the reaction parameters (reaction rates and stoichiometry) and moreover the dependence of higher-order moment on lower order ones is consistent with the population being jointly lognormally distributed.
Designing experiments to understand the variability in biochemical reaction networks
An optimal experimental design framework is proposed which is employed to compare the utility of dual-reporter and perturbation experiments for quantifying the different noise sources in a simple model of gene expression and it is shown that well-chosen gene induction patterns may allow one to identify features of the system which remain hidden in unplanned experiments.
Moment estimation for chemically reacting systems by extended Kalman filtering.
The initial motivation for the method was improving over the performance of stochastic simulation and moment closure methods, and it is demonstrated that it can be used in an experimental setting to estimate moments of species that cannot be measured directly from time course measurements of the moments of other species.
Solving the chemical master equation using sliding windows
The sliding window method is a novel approach to address the performance problems of numerical algorithms for the solution of the chemical master equation, which efficiently approximates the probability distributions at the time points of interest for a variety of chemically reacting systems.
Deviant effects in molecular reaction pathways
This work comprehensively characterize potential CCK failure patterns in biological settings, including consequences of the assertion that CCK is closer to the 'mode' rather than the 'average' of stochastic reaction dynamics, as generally perceived.

Moment closure is a technique used to construct systems of differential equations to approximately compute means, standard deviations, and correlations between molecule counts of species involved in
Reduction of the chemical master equation for gene regulatory networks using proper generalized decompositions
This work presents a new technique based on the approximation of the unknown variable (the probability of having a particular chemical state) in terms of a finite sum of separable functions, by using terms as needed in the finite sums decomposition for ensuring convergence.
