Abstract

Transcriptional reprogramming plays a significant role in governing plant responses to pathogens. The underlying regulatory networks are complex and dynamic, responding to numerous input signals. Most network modelling studies to date have used large-scale expression data sets from public repositories but defence network models with predictive ability have also been inferred from single time series data sets, and sophisticated biological insights generated from focused experiments containing multiple network perturbations. Using multiple network inference methods, or combining network inference with additional data, such as promoter motifs, can enhance the ability of the model to predict gene function or regulatory relationships. Network topology can highlight key signaling components and provides a systems level understanding of plant defence.
