Project: Systems Biology Workbench
Researchers in quantitative systems biology make use of a large number of different software packages for modeling, analysis, visualization, and general data manipulation. The Systems Biology Workbench (SBW), is a software framework that allows heterogeneous application components-written in diverse programming languages and running on different platforms - to communicate and use each others' capabilities via a fast binary encoded-message system. Our goal was to create a simple, high performance, open-source software infrastructure which is easy to implement and understand. SBW enables applications (potentially running on separate, distributed computers) to communicate via a simple network protocol. The interfaces to the system are encapsulated in client-side libraries that we provide for different programming languages.

Project: libSBML
LibSBML is a library designed to help you read, write, manipulate, translate, and validate SBML files and data streams. It is not an application itself (though it does come with many example programs), but rather a library you can embed in your own applications. LibSBML is written in ISO C and C++ but as a library it may be used from a number of programming languages. In fact, we strive to adhere to the natural idioms of each particular language to make the libSBML programming experience seamless. For example, SBML elements behave like lists and sequences in Python, but vectors in Matlab. Also, the C and C++ interfaces are completely distinct (it's possible to program in pure C), but in C++ the C APIs may be called without sacrifcing type safety. The LibSBML code is very portable and is supported on Linux, Windows (native), and Mac OS X.

Project: Reduction of dimensionality in dynamic biological models
Detailed dynamic models of networks of coupled biochemical reactions are hard to apply without extensive reduction of their dimensionality. We aim at designing an algorithm that would lead to internally consistent reduction corresponding to a particular time resolution.

Project: SBML ODE Solver Library (SOSlib)
The SBML ODE Solver Library (SOSlib) is both a programming library and a command-line application for construction, symbolic and numerical analysis of a system of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) derived from a chemical reaction network encoded in the Systems Biology Markup Language (SBML). It is written in ISO C and distributed under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL). The package employs libSBML's AST (Abstract Syntax Tree) for formula representation to construct ODE systems, their Jacobian matrix and other derivatives. SUNDIALS' version of CVODE is incorporated for numerical integration and sensitivity analysis of stiff and non-stiff ODE systems.

Project: CellDesigner
A modeling/simulation tool for biochemical networks. CellDesigner is a structured diagram editor for drawing gene-regulatory and biochemical networks. Networks are drawn based on the process diagram, with graphical notation system proposed by Kitano, and are stored using SBML. Networks are able to link with simulation and other analysis packages through Systems Biology Workbench (SBW).

Project: SBML Layout Extension
The SBML Layout Extension is an extension to the SBML file format that allows the storage of graphical layout information on reaction networks within an SBML file. We are currently working on complementing the layout extension with render information to make it applicable to a wider range of graph types.

Project: libSBML/SBMLToolbox
SBMLToolbox is a package for working with SBML models in MATLAB. The toolbox currently includes functions for reading and writing SBML models, converting SBML models into MATLAB data structures, viewing and manipulating those structures, converting them to MATLAB symbolic format, and simulating them using MATLAB's ODE solvers.

Project: SBMLeditor
The SBMLeditor provides a simple, low level editor of SBML files of any level. Users can create and remove all the necessary bits and pieces of SBML in a controlled way that maintains the validity of the final SBML file.
