Abstract

Mathematical model is an important tool in systems biology to study the dynamics of biological systems inside the cell. One of the significant challenges in systems biology is the lack of kinetic rates that should be measured in experiments or estimated from experimental data. This work addresses this issue by using a genetic algorithm to estimate reaction rates related to the phosphorylation and dephosphorylation of MAP kinase (ERK) in the mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase pathway from biological measurements. In addition, we discuss the robustness of the mathematical model with regards to the variation of kinetic rates together with external noise due to environmental fluctuations. This has been proposed as an additional criterion to choose the estimate from the candidate parameter sets that are obtained from different implementations of the genetic algorithm.
