Abstract: The reconstruction of gene networks is crucial to the understanding of cellular processes which are studied in Systems Biology. The success of computational methods of drug discovery and disease diagnosis is dependent upon our understanding of the biological basis of the interaction networks between the genes. Better modelling of biological processes and powerful evolutionary methods are proving to be a key factor in the solution of such problems. However, most of these methods are based on processing of genotypic information. We present an evolutionary algorithm for inferring gene networks from expression data using phenotypic interactions. The benefit of this is that we avoid the need for an explicit objective function in the optimization process. In order to realize this, we have implemented a method called as the Phenomic algorithm and validated it for stability and accuracy in the reconstruction of gene networks. � Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2010.
