Optimal Design of Non-equilibrium Experiments for Genetic Network Interrogation

Optimal Design of Non-equilibrium Experiments for Genetic Network Interrogation

This model was developed to investigate the recruitment process in the replication cycle of BMV, a positive strand RNA virus. This replication cycle is highly conserved across positive strand RNA viruses, such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Hepatitis C, and the BMV system has been used to gain insights into interactions of the virus with host factors [12, 13, 14]. Briefly, the mathematical model describes the interaction between Protein 1a (x(t)) and RNA3 in the unstabilized (y(t)) and stabilized (z(t)) forms; for an in-depth description see [10]. The levels of Protein 1a (x(t)) and total RNA3 (y(t) + z(t)) are measured at time points designed by the experimenter. Param- eters describing Protein 1a (r x , d x , A) were estimated prior to estimating parameters for

ESTIMATION OF PROBABILITY MEASURES USING AGGREGATE POPULATION DATA: ANALYSIS OF A CAR T-CELL CANCER MODEL AND OPTIMAL

ESTIMATION OF PROBABILITY MEASURES USING AGGREGATE POPULATION DATA: ANALYSIS OF A CAR T-CELL CANCER MODEL AND OPTIMAL

working in collaborative efforts with ecologists, biologists, and quantitative life scientists, renewed in- terest in design of “best” experiments to elucidate mechanisms has been seen [AB]. Thus, a major question that experimentalists and inverse problem investigators alike often face is how to best collect the data to enable one to efficiently and accurately estimate model parameters. This is the well-known and widely studied optimal design problem. A rather through review is given in [BHT2014]. Briefly, traditional optimal design methods (D-optimal, E-optimal, c-optimal) [AD, BW, Fed, Fed2] use infor- mation from the model to find the sampling distribution or mesh for the observation times (and/or locations in spatially distributed problems) that minimizes a design criterion, quite often a function of the Fisher Information Matrix (FIM). Experimental data taken on this optimal mesh are then expected to result in accurate parameter estimates. We outline a framework based on the FIM for a system of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) to determine when an experimenter should take samples and what variables to measure when collecting information on a physical or biological process modeled by a dynamical system.

D-Optimal Design for Logistic Regression Model with Three Independent Variables

D-Optimal Design for Logistic Regression Model with Three Independent Variables

Model estimating and fitting are two important topics in statistical sciences. The present paper was written considering the crucial role of statistical discussions in other sciences such as industries, medicine and so on. As mentioned earlier, model fitting is one of the important discussions in statistics; thus, in most cases, fitting and obtaining a relationship between dependent variable(s) and independent variable(s) are intended to be achieved. When the effect of an independent variable on a dependent variable is investigated, two points should be taken into consideration: a) finding independent variables which affect dependent variables, and b) finding values of dependent variables which have a significant role in model fitting. Therefore, the basic motivation for designing optimal experiments is to find an ideal design that could result in appropriate inferences about model parameters by conducting an experiment using this design.

Optimization Of Clay-Bonded Graphite Crucible Using D-Optimal Design Under Mixture Methodology

Optimization Of Clay-Bonded Graphite Crucible Using D-Optimal Design Under Mixture Methodology

Response surface methodology (RSM) consists of a set of statistical methods that can be used to develop, improve or optimized products (Cihon, 2003). RSM typically is used in situations where several factors influence one or more performance characteristics or responses. RSM used to optimize one or more responses or to meet a given set of specification (e. g a minimum strength specification or an allowable range of values). There are three general steps to that which comprise: experimental design, modeling, and optimization (Gihan, 2013). In order to obtain a higher and homogeneous mixture of crucible composition, it is important that the optimal additives to be added to clay and graphite are investigated. Design of experiment is useful in the analysis and optimization of the mixture effects of several process variables influencing responses with a minimum number of experimental runs while varying the variables concurrently (Oladosu et al, 2016). In the mixture experiments, the measured response is assumed to depend only on the relative ratio of the components in the mixture and not on the amount of the mixture, compared to Taguchi and factorial methods (Anderson and Whitcomb, 2014). The focus of this study is therefore to investigate the influence of optimizing the mixture of clay, graphite and selective additives such as MgO and SiC on the production of crucibles with the view of developing an effective and suitable mixing ratio for clay bonded crucible production.

aliasing artifacts. Furthermore, even the fastest known strategies for evaluating popular dis- crepancy measures require O(N 2 d) operations making evaluation, let alone optimization, for discrepancy difficult even for moderate dimensions. Finally, for most discrepancy mea- sures, the optimal achievable values are not known. This makes it difficult to determine whether a poorly performing sample design (e.g., in terms of generalization (or test error) in a regression application and reconstruction error in an image reconstruction application) is due to the insufficiency of the chosen discrepancy measure or due to ineffective optimization. Another class of metrics to describe sample designs are based on geometric distances. These can be used directly by, for example, optimizing the maximin or minimax distance of a sample design (Schlomer et al., 2011) or indirectly by enforcing empty disk conditions. The latter is the basis for the so-called Poisson disk samples (Lagae and Dutr, 2008), which aim to generate random points such that no two samples can be closer than a given minimal distance r min , i.e. enforcing an empty disc of radius r min around each sample. Typically,

Dynamic Planning of Experiments for the Optimisation of Managerial Scheduling

Dynamic Planning of Experiments for the Optimisation of Managerial Scheduling

of an RSM problem. Recently, many researchers have considered this issue. Lucas and Ju (1992) provided a simulation study to investigate the use of split-plot designs in industrial experiments. Their results confirmed that steepest ascent designs produce increased precision for the subplot factors while sacrificing precision for the whole plot elements. Box (1996) explained that completely randomized experiments are often impractical in industry; in contrast, he indicated that split-plot experiments are often extremely efficient and easier to run. To illustrate the difference in the analysis, Lucas and Hazel (1997) ran the known paper- helicopter experiment as a CRD and as a split plot. Letsinger, Myers and Lentner (1996) introduced randomization designs (BRD), which are designs that have two randomisations, making them similar to split-plot designs. Vining, Kowalski, and Montgomery (2004) proposed central composite designs that were specifically designed for split- plot experiments. They also provided a general proof showing that for certain design conditions, the ordinary least squares coefficient estimates are equivalent to the generalized least squares coefficient estimates for second-order models. Kowalski, Vining, Montgomery and Borror (2004) modified the proposed central composite designs of Vining, Kowalski and Montgomery (2004) to model both the process mean and variances within a split- plot structure. Moreover, Bisgaard and Steinberg (1997) focussed on a design algorithm to obtain D-optimal split-plot designs. They showed that the design matrices for the D-optimal split-plot designs and D-optimal CRDs are typically different; moreover, they clarified that split-plot experiments are often more efficient than CRDs Huang, Chen and Voelkel (1998) and Bingham and Sitter (1999a) discussed minimum-aberration (MA) designs for steepest ascent experiments; in these works, both the whole-plot and subplot factors had two levels. The researchers provided methods for determining the MA designs and provided tables for various combinations of whole-plot and subplot factors. Some design issues with two-level fractional– factorial split-plot experiments, including where to split and where to fractionate, were presented in Bingham and Sitter (2001).

Advancing implementation conditions of optimal experimental design for dual response systems using one continuous response and one binary response

Advancing implementation conditions of optimal experimental design for dual response systems using one continuous response and one binary response

2 Experimental design methods are useful for making testing more economical. Results with these approaches can be achieved with less investment of time or resources. One type of experimental design is optimal experimental design. Optimal experimental design is a method which maximizes the amount of information gained from the experiment when the number of trials is constrained. The settings in the resulting design are chosen to maximize the probability of improving the model of interest. Unlike traditional factorial designs, optimal experimental designs require prior knowledge of the system being studied for generating the design. An optimal approach can work well when prior system knowledge is available, but results suffer if little is known about the system. Optimal design is further complicated with the addition of multiple responses.

processes. The purpose of this paper has been to illustrate the importance of screening experiments and full factorial experiments using two catapult experiments. Screening experiments using P–B design were used to identify the most important control factors. P–B designs were used to separate out the ‘vital few’ main effects from the ‘trivial many’. Having identified the key factors from the screening experiment, a full factorial experiment was used to study both the main effects and the interaction effects. Apart from the use of P–B designs for screening experiments, one can also look at the use of powerful saturated fractional factorial designs. Instead of using a 12-run P–B design, it is also worthwhile looking at the use of 2 ( 7 − 4 ) fractional factorial design for studying seven factors in eight trials. This is a resolution III design, where main effects are confounded with two-way interaction effects. Design resolution is a summary characteristic of confounding patterns [12]. In order to study the main effects clear of two-way interactions, one could utilize the use of fold-over designs or reflected designs advocated by Box [9].

Enhancement of physicochemical properties of nanocolloidal carrier loaded with cyclosporine for topical treatment of psoriasis: in vitro diffusion and in vivo hydrating action

Enhancement of physicochemical properties of nanocolloidal carrier loaded with cyclosporine for topical treatment of psoriasis: in vitro diffusion and in vivo hydrating action

Figure 1B shows a 3-D model of the effect of independent variables on PDI. The lowest PDI was obtained at the low- est amounts of oil and xanthan gum, and also at the highest amounts of surfactant and water. PDI is a measurement of inconsistency in particle size in the nanoemulsion system, and PDI value is used as an indication to measure the uniformity of particle dispersion in the nanoemulsion system. Therefore, lower PDI values are favorable. In this case, the system formed was an o/w nanoemulsion, in which the particles being measured were the oil droplets. When a small amount of xanthan gum was used, the nanoemulsion formed became thinner. The homogenization process became easier, and led to more uniformed production of particle sizes, confirmed by a low PDI result.

of Patterson (1964), who excluded the simpler fi xed rotation experiments that study the eff ects of treatments on the crops of a single rotation. (Th ese can involve some of the problems discussed in below but are inherently much easier to handle.) To illustrate the concepts, Table 1 shows one block of an experiment by Glynne and Slope (1959), which was designed to assess the eff ects of previous cropping by bean (Vicia faba L.) or potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) on the incidence of eyespot (Oculimacula yallundae and Oculimacula acuformis) in winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). Th e crops in Years 1 and 2 are treatment crops that set the scene for Year 3, when test crops are grown to enable the diff erences between the sequences to be assessed. Th e two winter wheat crops in Year 2 also act as partial test crops in that they allow the eff ects from the wheat and potato crops in Year 1 to be assessed. No analysis was made of the bean or potato yields.

SIMULTANEOUS DETERMINATION OF KETOROLAC TROMETHAMINE AND OLOPATADINE-HCl IN PURE FORM, MARKETED TABLETS AND NEW FORMULATED FAST DISSOLVING FILMS

2.3.3. Preparation of Orally Dissolving Films of ketorolac tromethamine and olopatadine-HCl Using D-optimal design: Fast dissolving oral films were prepared by solvent casting technique. The formulations were prepared as per Table (2). The hydrophilic polymers namely Hydroxy propyl methyl cellulose (HPMC E5) and Kollicoat IR were accurately weighed and dissolved in 10 mL distilled water and 0.1 mL glycerol was added as a plasticizer. Kollidone was added as superdisintegrant. Then OPD-HCl - Kleptose complex in ratio (1:1) and KTR- T were added to the polymeric dispersion under constant stirring with a magnetic stirrer for 15 minutes. The resultant homogeneous solution was poured into a petridish. Then the films were dried in an oven at 50ºC for 24 h. The films were then carefully removed and cut into strips of dimension 3×3 cm, and the dried films were wrapped in a butter paper, covered with an aluminum foil and stored in an air tight glass container for further investigations (31) .

Active Learning of Causal Networks with Intervention Experiments and Optimal Designs

Active Learning of Causal Networks with Intervention Experiments and Optimal Designs

When both the number h of undirected edges and the number g of nodes in a chain component are very large, instead of using the optimal designs, we may use the approximate designs via sampling DAGs. We checked several standard graphs found at the Bayesian Network Repository (http://compbio.cs.huji.ac.il/Repository/). We extracted their chain components and found that most of their chain components have tree structures and their sizes are not large. For example, ALARM with 37 nodes has 4 chain components with only two nodes in each component, HailFinder with 56 nodes has only one component with 18 nodes, Carpo with 60 nodes has 9 components with at most 7 nodes in each component, Diabets with 413 nodes has 25 components with at most 3 nodes, and Mumin 2 to Mumin 4 with over 1000 nodes have at most 21 components with at most 35 nodes. Moreover, all of those largest chain components have tree structures, and thus we can easily carry out optimal designs as discussed in Example 2.

Development and Evaluation of Microsphere Based Topical Formulation using Design of Experiments

Development and Evaluation of Microsphere Based Topical Formulation using Design of Experiments

The aim of this work is to develop microsphere formulation and study the impact of drug-polymer ratio, surfactant concentration and stirring speed on particle size and drug entrapment during preparation. Clotrimazole-loaded Eudragit S100 microspheres were prepared by emulsion solvent evaporation method. A three level factorial Box-Behnken design was used to characterize and optimize the formulation. The result of analysis of variance test indicated that the test is significant. The optimum drug:polymer ratio (X1), surfactant concentration (X2) and stirring speed (X3) was found to be 1:4, 1.5% and 1000 rpm, respectively to obtain particle size and maximum entrapment efficiency of microspheres as 35.6 µm and 83.3%, respectively. The drug release from microsphere based cream exhibited a controlled release pattern.

Optimal Allocation of Stratified Sampling Design Using Gradient Projection Method

Since n 1 and n 2 are required to be the integers. For practical purpose if the solution is non integer then the NLPP is solved using Branch and Bound method instead of rounding the non integer sample sizes to the nearest integral values. However in some situation for small samples the rounded off allocation may become infeasible and non optimal In order to get the integer value we use Branch and bound method as given below for problem (p1). Using LINGO-13.0, we obtain the integer optimum allocation as n 1 =4 and n 2 = 21 and the optimal value is 96.

The screening of parameters influencing the Hydrodistillation of Moroccan Myrtus communis L leaves by experiments design methodology

L., is an herb widely used throughout the world. It is one of the most popular plants in Morocco. For the purpose of examining the factors affecting extraction of this plant’s essential oil by hydrodistillation, a screening study by Hadamard matrix type Placket and Burman was conducted. After an appropriate choice of seven variables, sixteen experiments lead to a mathematical model of first degree ponse function (yield) to factors. After the experiment’s realization and data analysis, we concluded that five factors have a significant effect on the hydrodistillation process, namely: the extracting the material/water ratio and the heating temperature with 0.015 respectively. Moreover, the plant material’s drying and

The Construction of Locally D Optimal Designs by Canonical Forms to an Extension for the Logistic Model

The Construction of Locally D Optimal Designs by Canonical Forms to an Extension for the Logistic Model

In this paper, it is proposed the use of canonical forms to solve a problem non-standard of optimal experimental designs laid out by Atkinson et al. (1995) [1] upon calculating the optimum dose of a fly insecticide. The main difficulty arises by adding uncertainty about gender since they differ in the response and the experiment only senses applied on the whole population. The witty transformation of the problem to a canonical version reduces the parameter dependence leading to analytical expression of the optimal weights. From these, we are able to compute D-optimal designs for several cases. In particular, it is constructed optimal designs for two and three dose levels.
