This tool allows import of SBML model files from the subcellular model building and calibration toolset workflow or other external sources. The tool allows users to setup and configure BioNetGen and STEPS simulations. Users can populate mesh models of spines and other neural structures, and run stochastic simulations of signalling pathways.
Toolset for data-driven building of subcellular biochemical signaling pathway models.
The toolset includes interoperable modules for: model building, calibration (parameter estimation) and model analysis. All information needed to perform these tasks are stored in a structured, human- and machine-readable file format based on SBtab. This information includes: models, experimental calibration data and prior assumptions on parameter distributions. The toolset enables simulations of the same model in simulators with different characteristics, e.g. STEPS, NEURON, MATLAB’s Simbiology and R via automatic code generation.
The parameter estimation is done by optimization or Bayesian approaches. Model analysis includes global sensitivity analysis and functionality for analyzing thermodynamic constraints and conserved moieties.
