itk::bio::Gene Class Reference

#include <itkBioGene.h>

List of all members.

Detailed Description

This class implement the abstraction of a biological gene.

The gene has a name and a specification of promoters and represor binding sites. Promoter and represors encode a boolean expression that allows to control the expression of the gene. These boolean expression will result in a polynome in a finite different equation determining the rate at which protein is syntethizied by this gene.

Member Function Documentation

void itk::bio::Gene::AddGeneControlDomain ( const DomainType domain,
bool  type 

Add a control domain to the gene. A control domain is an enhancer or silencer. A gene can have any number of them. The type will indicate if they are enhancers or silencers.

void itk::bio::Gene::AddProteinDomain ( const DomainType domain,
AffinityType  affinity 

Add a protein domain along with an affinity. The name of the domain here actually refers to the one for which this protein will have binding affinity. For example, adding "SH2" with affinity 0.05 will means that this gene will synthetize a proteing with a domain that has 0.05 affinity for a standard SH2 domain.

void itk::bio::Gene::Copy ( const Gene genome  ) 

const char* itk::bio::Gene::GetName (  )  const

void itk::bio::Gene::SetName ( const char *  name  ) 

void itk::bio::Gene::SetName ( const NameType name  ) 

Set/Get the name of the gene. This uses a std::string type.
