The molecular biology of life seems inaccessibly complex, and gene expression is an essential part of it. It is subject to random variation and not exactly predictable. Still, mathematical models and statistical inference pave the way towards the identification of underlying gene regulatory processes. In contrast to deterministic models, stochastic processes capture the randomness of natural phenomena and result in more reliable predictions of cellular dynamics. Stochastic models and their parameter estimation have to take into account the nature of molecular-biological data, including experimental techniques and measurement error.
This talk presents according modelling and estimation techniques and their applications: the derivation of mRNA contents in single cells; the identification of differently regulated cells from heterogeneous populations using mixed models; and parameter estimation for stochastic differential equations using computer-intensive Markov chain Monte Carlo techniques.
