Gene regulatory networks¶
This example describes the simulation of a gene regulatory network in Siconos. For a complete description of the problem see [Acary.DeJong.Brogliatio2014]
A piecewise linear model is used as a model for the gene regulatory network, in which the variables denote concentrations of gene products.
We consider a two genes system with the following dynamics:
with the step functions:
\(\theta_j^k\) are thresholds that control inhibition/activation of the expression of a gene.
