Abstract:
Boolean models of cellular regulation have long been an anecdotal concept for how regulation in complex networks might function. Recently, however, several such models have been proposed that predict dynamics of regulatory modules in real cell from simple discrete dynamical network models. I here review these recent developments and discuss prospects and limitations of Boolean models for biological regulation.
