We model genetic regulatory networks in the framework of continuous-time recurrent networks. The network parameters are determined from gene expression level time series data using genetic algorithms. We have applied the method to expression data from the development of rat central nervous system, where the active genes cluster into four groups, within which the temporal expression patterns are similar. The data permit us to identify approximately the interactions between these groups of genes. We find that generally a single time series is of limited value in determining the interactions in the network, but multiple time series collected in related tissues or under treatment with different drugs can fix their values much more precisely.
