getStateSummary {BoolNet}R Documentation

Retrieve summary information on a state


Returns information on the supplied state, i.e. the successive state after a transition, the (synchronous) attractor to which the state leads, and the distance to this attractor.


getStateSummary(attractorInfo, state)



An object of class AttractorInfo, as returned by getAttractors, or of class SymbolicSimulation, as returned by simulateSymbolicModel. As the transition table information in this structure is required, getAttractors must be called in synchronous mode and with returnTable set to TRUE. Similarly, simulateSymbolicModel must be called with returnGraph=TRUE.


A 0-1 vector with n elements (where n is the number of genes in the underlying networks) describing the state.


Returns a generic dataframe of the class TransitionTable. For n genes, the first n columns code for the original state (in this case, the state parameter), i.e. each column represents the value of one gene. The next n columns code for the successive state after a transition. The column attractorAssignment indicates the attractor to the state is assigned. If this information is available, the column stepsToAttractor indicates how many transitions are needed from the original state to the attractor. In this case, the table has only one row describing the supplied state. The TransitionTable class supports pretty printing using the print method.
