The combination of faster, more advanced computers and more quantitatively oriented biomedical researchers has recently yielded new and more precise methods for the analysis of biomedical data. These better analyses have enhanced the conclusions that can be drawn from biomedical data, and they have changed the way that experiments are designed and performed. This volume, along with previous and forthcoming Computer Methods volumes for the Methods in Enzymology serial, aims to inform biomedical researchers about recent applications of modern data analysis and simulation methods as applied to biomedical research. * Presents step-by-step computer methods and discusses the techniques in detail to enable their implementation in solving a wide range of problems * Informs biomedical researchers of the modern data analysis methods that have developed alongside computer hardware *Presents methods at the qnuts and boltsq level to identify and resolve a problem and analyze what the results meanThis can take the form of known edges in the wiring diagram or known Boolean functions for some of the network nodes. Recall that an edge from node xi to node xj in the wiring diagram indicates that node xi exerts causal influence on the anbsp;...
