    Abstract Summary pystablemotifs is a Python 3 library for analyzing Boolean networks. Its non-heuristic and exhaustive attractor identification algorithm was previously presented in Rozum et al. (2021). Here, we illustrate its performance improvements over similar methods and discuss how it uses outputs of the attractor identification process to drive a system to one of its attractors from any initial state. We implement six attractor control algorithms, five of which are new in this work. By design, these algorithms can return different control strategies, allowing for synergistic use. We also give a brief overview of the other tools implemented in pystablemotifs.more »Availability and implementation The source code is on GitHub at Supplementary information Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.« less

  2. We present new applications of parity inversion and time reversal to the emergence of complex behavior from simple dynamical rules in stochastic discrete models. Our parity-based encoding of causal relationships and time-reversal construction efficiently reveal discrete analogs of stable and unstable manifolds. We demonstrate their predictive power by studying decision-making in systems biology and statistical physics models. These applications underpin a novel attractor identification algorithm implemented for Boolean networks under stochastic dynamics. Its speed enables resolving a long-standing open question of how attractor count in critical random Boolean networks scales with network size and whether the scaling matches biological observations.more »Via 80-fold improvement in probed network size ( N = 16,384), we find the unexpectedly low scaling exponent of 0.12 ± 0.05, approximately one-tenth the analytical upper bound. We demonstrate a general principle: A system’s relationship to its time reversal and state-space inversion constrains its repertoire of emergent behaviors.« less
