Mania: a gene network reverse algorithm for compounds mode-of-action and genes interactions inference. Understanding the complexity of the cellular machinery represents a grand challenge in molecular biology. To contribute to the deconvolution of this complexity, a novel inference algorithm based on linear ordinary differential equations is proposed, based solely on high-throughput gene expression data. The algorithm can infer (i) gene-gene interactions from steady state expression profiles and (ii) mode-of-action of the components that can trigger changes in the system. The results demonstrate that the proposed algorithm can identify both information with high performances, thus overcoming the limitation of current algorithms that can infer reliably only one.
