Table 3 Particular settings of Campbell and Steele’s [5] method

From: Approximate parameter inference in systems biology using gradient matching: a comparative evaluation

Abbreviation Definition Details
10C 10 chains When comparing our methods, it was of interest to see how the performance depended on the number of parallel MCMC chains, as originally the authors used 4 chains
Obs20 20 observations Originally, the authors use 401 observations. We reduced this to a dataset size more usual with these types of experiments to observe the dependency of the methods on the amount of data
15K 15 knots The method in C&S uses B-splines interpolation. We changed the original tuning parameters from the authors' paper to observe the sensitivity of the parameter estimation by these tuning parameters
P3 polynomial order 3 (cubic spline) The original polynomial order is 5 and again, we wanted to observe the sensitivity of the parameter estimation by these tuning parameters
