Take a gNAP before wearing your gloves! Genetic Network Analyze and Predict
The sketch and final GUI of gNAP!
We compare the result of our software with gene expression profile in literature.
We are USTC-Software!



In order to simulate the GRN's working and analyze the changing after exogenous gene imported, some advanced algorithms and classical methods are employed in the software. These algorithms and methods include Binary Tree method, Needle-Wunsch Algorithm, Decision Tree method, Hill Equation and PSO Algorithm.

There are four parts of methodologies: Database, Operon Theory and Regulatory Model, Forward Analysis and Reverse Analysis.


Fetch Regulation
Fetch Gene Info
Fetch Promoter Info

Our software integrates all information we picked out about genes and generates a file named “all_info” —— all information about genes —— for the output graphical interface's reading. In the meanwhile, the array of objects containing all information has been stored in computer memory which greatly improve the computing speed of our software.

  The format of all_info database:
    No.    promoter_sequence    gene_sequence    gene_name    ID    left_position    right_position    promoter_name     description
The fetching module generates three files: old_GRN, all_info and uncertain_database.
