We propose a novel framework for studying causal inference of gene interactions using a combination of compressive sensing and Granger causality techniques.
Casual Compressive Sensing for Gene Network Inference
We propose a novel method for identifying causal gene dependencies based on two ideas: compressive sensing and a non-standard version of Granger causality, or elimination analysis.
Casual Compressive Sensing for Gene Network Inference
Granger causality may be incorporated in this framework by using time delayed pro files for recognition purposes and incorporating them into the sensing matrix as part of an elimination approach.
Casual Compressive Sensing for Gene Network Inference
Compressive sensing and Granger causality are brie fly introduced in Section 2.
Casual Compressive Sensing for Gene Network Inference
One of the simplest causality testing schemes, originally proposed in econometrics, is Granger causality.

These genes were then used in the elimination method described in the previous section, i.e., for each of the 34 test genes a Granger test was performed with respect to the remaining 33 genes.
