Modeling and Control in Cancer Genomics Chapter uri icon


  • 2008 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. Genomics concerns the study of large sets of genes with the goal of understanding collective function, rather than that of individual genes. Such a study is important because cellular control and its failure in disease result from multivariate activity among cohorts of genes. Very recent research indicates that engineering approaches for prediction, signal processing, and control are quite well suited for studying this kind of multivariate interaction. In this chapter, we will present an overview of the research that has been accomplished thus far in this interdisciplinary field and point out some of the open research challenges that remain.
