Title: Approximate Bayesian inference in biological networks

Abstract: I will present some work applying approximate inference approaches in
Systems Biology to analyse models where exact inference would be too computationally expensive. A focus will be the analysis of protein interaction network data, that are often noisy and only represent subsets of the ``true'' interaction network. One such approach is to use Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC), and we will show how this can be used to compare simple models of protein interaction network evolution. In this framework we can then use model averaging to make predictions about various properties of the network.
