PySCeS provides a variety of tools for the analysis of cellular systems
New Release 0.9.0
Windows 7 + Python 2.7 32bit? try "easy_install pysces"
- A human readable Model Description Language used to define models.
- The full power of Python available for you to test, build and share your modelling experiments.
- Follow a models evolution over time with solvers like LSODA. Need a more flexible/powerful solver easily extend PySCeS functionality by using the industry standard CVODE (via PySUNDIALS)
- PySCeS includes a selection of non-linear root-finding algorithms that can quickly and efficiently be used to calculate steady state solutions (e.g. HYBRD, NLEQ2).
- Investigate the control and regulation of cellular systems with a completer Metabolic Control Analysis (MCA) module that evaluates elasticities, flux and concentration control coeffcients and response coefficients.
- A structural analysis module for determination of nullspaces and reduced stoichiometric matrix for models up to the genome scale.
- A bifurcation analysis module for the study of systems which exhibit multiple (stable and unstable) steady state solutions (PITCON).
- User friendly methods for generating and 1,2 and n dimension parameter scans.
- Visualise the results of simulations with a unifed, flexible plotting interface that allows for the use of multiple backends e.g. Matplotlib and/or Gnuplot.
- SBML import and export capability is provided by an interface module that converts SBML into the PySCeS MDL and models into SBML.
- User friendly documentation available as docstrings, HTML and PDF.
- PySCeS is developed as Open Source software distributed under its own BSD style licence.
