First, the problem of identifying interconnections between genes from noisy data is addressed. Existing solutions formulated in a discrete framework are reviewed and simplified significantly with the help of tools from convex optimization theory. Second, a novel method for model verification and discrimination is introduced. It is based on concepts from robust control theory and allows to quantify the capability of a model to reproduce experimentally observed stationary behaviors. As the proposed formalism only requires a vague knowledge about the interactions between the molecules, the method is intended to test and compare early modeling hypotheses. Third, the problem of controlling gene regulation networks in presence of qualitative information only is studied. Methods from discrete event systems theory are adapted to obtain stimulation strategies that will steer the network toward a desired attractor. The benefits of all contributions are illustrated with examples in the individual chapters.
