Constraint Identification Using Modified Hoare Logic on Hybrid Models of Gene Networks

pdf-format:


Abstract

We present a new hybrid Hoare logic dedicated for a class of linear hybrid automata well suited to model gene regulatory networks. These automata rely on Thomas' discrete framework in which qualitative parameters have been replaced by continuous parameters called celerities. The identification of these parameters remains one of the keypoints of the modelling process, and is difficult especially because the modelling framework is based on a continuous time. We introduce Hoare triples which handle biological traces and pre/post-conditions. Observed chronometrical biological traces play the role of an imperative program for classical Hoare logic and our hybrid Hoare logic, defined by inference rules, is proved to be sound. Furthermore, we present a weakest precondition calculus (a la Dijkstra) which leads to constraints on dynamical parameters. Finally, we illustrate our "constraints generator" with a simplified circadian clock model describing the rhythmicity of cells in mammals on a 24-hour period.
