DVD is a tool for the visualization of the dynamics
of multistate discrete models of biological networks.
Multistate discrete models are characterized by a collection of
functions. For a network of n nodes, the
corresponding discrete
model will have n functions, where the ith
function
describes the
state transitions of the ith node in the
network.
The
user of the software provides the size of the state space, by indicating
the number of nodes (n) and thenumber of possible states per
node (m), and a text file containing transition (polynomial) functions.
It computes the
transition states from all possible initializations and outputs
some statistics as well as the graph of the entire state space/network.
