Abstract

We investigate the employment of the co-evolutionary genetic algorithm (CoGA) as a search mechanism in a support system for designing the prediction, functionality and interaction of expression level in population of gene expressions. To correctly identify interactions between various experimental conditions or expression levels, we proposed a fitness function which is a metric on two randomly chosen expressed populations and integrated for the whole population. Our result indicates that expression level variability is not simply the manifestation of noise in the system, but instead it is probably the results of processes involving stochastic state transitions. These results finally suggest that even if genes in a population are independent, the number of proteins (and/or mRNAs) more likely co-regulated.
