MetaReg is a computational methdology and platform developed in Prof. Ron Shamir's Computational Genomics Group at Tel Aviv University.

Biological systems are traditionaly studied by focusing on specific subsystems, building intuitive models on regulatory relations in them and refining them using results from carefully designed experiments. Modern experimental techniques provide massive data on the global behavior of biological systems, but current methods are not systematically using these large datasets for refining existing knowledge.

MetaReg combines formalization of existing qualitative models with probabilistic modeling and integration of high throughput experimental data. Using MetaReg, it is possible to
