creating a network using an app called Netsim (the app only works on Ipad) (genetic biology)
create a biological arrangement application NetSim, allotment your conception and you may acquire absolutely a few added credibility at the end of the semester. ( afterwards creating the arrangement charge to save the cipher aggregate is in youtube tutorial additionally address 2 paragraphs explain what you did. I will attache an example. )
Perhaps, the aboriginal thing
you should do is analysis out this abrupt addition to NetSim, an iPad app that the CSUN IT administration and castigation absolutely developed and launched aftermost year. Then, watch this video tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZ_vbQ-bi1s&feature=youtu.be . on how to use NetSim. By the way, acquire my acknowledgment for the low affection of the video - this is a assignment in advance in several ways, and I accept not had the time to adapt a tutorial video that looks a little added professional. On the cast side, you're the aboriginal bodies on Planet Earth to use this app in a real-life scenario. (...Yes, you may acquaint your friends...)
I can brainstorm that you'll accept several questions. Let me preemptively acknowledgment some:
- What affectionate of biological arrangement should I create?
It should be a atomic or abiogenetic network. It can be genes and proteins interacting with one another, including protein-protein, protein-DNA, abiogenetic and enzymatic interactions. Please burden from mapping physiological or ecological networks. Any interactions amid biological entities aural a corpuscle will work.
- Does it accept to be real, or can I accomplish one up?
It has to be based on some array of evidence. Obviously, you will accept to appear up with (i.e. accomplish some abreast guesstimates about ) specific ethics for ambit for which no ethics may exist, or are accessible to find. But I do apprehend the nodes (genes/proteins/molecules) and the interactions amid them to be based on absolute evidence, and that the ethics that you accept for them are reasonable. In fact, you'll accept to allotment a advertence to the sources that you acclimated to put calm your network, and some anecdotal to explain some of your decisions in accumulation the arrangement together.
- Does my arrangement accept to accept a minimum cardinal of nodes or interactions?
No. The added the merrier, of course. But the simplest of networks with alone two nodes and a brace of anxiously called ambit (and one that shows some circuitous behavior) could acquire you several points.
- Do I charge an iPad to download / install NetSim?
Yes. The app was developed in the ambience of the iPad initiative, and it runs alone on the iPad. It won't assignment on alternative tablets, laptop/desktop computers or iPhones.
- Do I charge to actualize and allotment my arrangement all in one sitting?
No! NetSim allows you to save your assignment in progress. At the actual end, you will accomplish a allotment cipher that you will abide as allotment of your submission. But that's at the end, aback you're blessed with your product. In the meantime, you can accessible and assignment on your arrangement as abounding times as you want/need - the alone affair that you charge to bethink is to save your adapted networks (the iPad will save them locally, and you will be able to acquisition them afterwards by date/time).
- How abounding credibility will I get for appointment a network?
The best cardinal of extra-credit credibility is 50. Yummy. But, how abounding credibility you absolutely get of advance depends on a alternation of allocation criteria. Actual about speaking, the added of the items beneath that you check, the added credibility that your arrangement will accrue:
-Narrative & References: You charge to abide a branch or two anecdotic the analysis abaft your network. Do not accept that I will apperceive any arrangement that you submit, no amount how "famous" or accepted its nodes and interactions may be. Do not accept that I will anon accept the authoritative access aural your arrangement based on ambit and configuration. A added complete and affecting anecdotal allows me to amount out if you chose reasonable ambit and access (and agenda I say "reasonable" not "right" or "correct"; already again, there may not be "right" or "correct" ambit for your network). In your narrative, you will additionally accept to accommodate any references abetment up your network. If you adduce the book, accord me (a) folio number(s). If you're citation commodity from lecture, accord me a address date. If your citation any internet source, accord me commodity authentic that I can analysis (perhaps a accurate URL?)
-Originality. I apprehend a fair allotment of networks depicting, for instance, the Trp or Lac operon (or any of the alternative real-life processes that we discussed in class). And that's fine! But if you can appear up with a arrangement that you put calm based on actual alfresco of the book or lecture... that's alike better!
-Number of nodes and interactions: the more, the merrier (i.e. the added points).
-Number of acknowledgment loops and autoregulatory connections: the more, the merrier (i.e. the added points).
-Complex behavior: Do the nodes in your arrangement appearance any circuitous behavior (dancing up and down, or acutely alteration behavior depending on slight changes to antecedent altitude or key parameters)...? Or does your arrangement appearance some nodes bound cutting up and blockage up, while others abatement and never appear back, behindhand of what ambit you accept for your your arrangement ...? The afterpiece to added circuitous behaviors, the better!
-Have you called all of your nodes? Accept you?
-Parameter choices. Are your time delays, alternation strengths and signs, alpha ethics and detereoration and assembly constants appropriately justified (i.e. reasonable) based on the advice in your sources?
- Can you accord us an example?
You can acquisition an archetype of a acquiescence here. The argument allocation of your acquiescence should briefly call the acumen abaft your choices for arrangement architectonics and parameters. In the archetype that I provide, I included a blueprint from the antecedent commodity on which the arrangement is based - I advance that you add a beheld advertence to your antecedent if you can, which could accomplish your job answer the arrangement a lot easier (a acceptable account is account a thousand words). Notice, also, that a simple advertence to the antecedent is enough. And best chiefly - accomplish abiding to accommodate the allotment cipher generated by NetSim (and bethink that you charge to accomplish the allotment cipher alone once; afterwards that, all the changes you accomplish will be adored to the aforementioned network).
