Bioconductor-mirror/birte: Bayesian Inference of Regulatory Influence on Expression (biRte)
Version 1.13.0

Expression levels of mRNA molecules are regulated by different processes, comprising inhibition or activation by transcription factors and post-transcriptional degradation by microRNAs. biRte uses regulatory networks of TFs, miRNAs and possibly other factors, together with mRNA, miRNA and other available expression data to predict the relative influence of a regulator on the expression of its target genes. Inference is done in a Bayesian modeling framework using Markov-Chain-Monte-Carlo. A special feature is the possibility for follow-up network reverse engineering between active regulators.
