### Abstract

Recently, there has been much interest in reverse engineering genetic networks from time series data. In this paper, we show that most of the proposed discrete time models — including the boolean network model [Kau93, SS96], the linear model of D’haeseleer et al. [DWFS99], and the nonlinear model of Weaver et al. [WWS99] — are all special cases of a general class of models called Dynamic Bayesian Networks (DBNs). The advantages of DBNs include the ability to model stochasticity, to incorporate prior knowledge, and to handle hidden variables and missing data in a principled way. This paper provides a review of techniques for learning DBNs. Keywords: Genetic networks, boolean networks, Bayesian networks, neural networks, reverse engineering, machine learning. 1
