We propose an integrated, comprehensive network-inferring system for genetic interactions, named VoyaGene, which can analyze experimentally observed expression profiles by using and combining the following five independent inferring models: Clustering, Threshold-Test, Bayesian, multi-level digraph and S-system models. Since VoyaGene also has effective tools for visualizing the inferred results, researchers may evaluate the combination of appropriate inferring models, and can construct a genetic network to an accuracy that is beyond the reach of a single inferring model. Through the use of VoyaGene, the present study demonstrates the effectiveness of combining different inferring models.
