Although we have tried to
develop a coherent set of tools and functions for the evolution,
simulation and visualization of Random Boolean Networks, there are
still ways to improve/enhance this Toolbox.
Future work on the RBN Toolbox might include the following points:
Development of some
high-level functions to run complete experiments over a random
set of topologies (Attractor length, number of attractors etc.)
Optimization of data
structures and algorithms. Although some effort has been made
to keep CPU-time and memory-ressources low, there is
undeniably some room for improvement (vectorization of Matlab
Provide solutions to
simulate networks with high connectivity (N~K). See the Limitations
section for more information on this issue.
Further Research. Exhaustive
experiments, using all possible sets of parameters may reveal
some new insight into the behaviour of Random Boolean
If you make any contribution to
the development or improvement of this RBN Toolbox, we are looking
forward to hearing from you.
