Calibrating parameters is a crucial problem within quantitative modeling approaches to reaction networks. Existing methods for stochastic models rely either on statistical sampling or can only be applied to small systems. Here we present an inference procedure for stochastic models in equilibrium that is based on a moment matching scheme with optimal weighting and that can be used with high-throughput data like the one collected by flow cytometry. Our method does not require an approximation of the underlying equilibrium probability distribution and, if reaction rate constants have to be learned, the optimal values can be computed by solving a linear system of equations. We evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed approach on three case studies.

Abstract

Calibrating parameters is a crucial problem within quantitative modeling approaches to reaction networks. Existing methods for stochastic models rely either on statistical sampling or can only be applied to small systems. Here we present an inference procedure for stochastic models in equilibrium that is based on a moment matching scheme with optimal weighting and that can be used with high-throughput data like the one collected by flow cytometry. Our method does not require an approximation of the underlying equilibrium probability distribution and, if reaction rate constants have to be learned, the optimal values can be computed by solving a linear system of equations. We evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed approach on three case studies.
