Frank Bergmann fbergman @ Univ. of Washington & Keck Graduate Institute, USA
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 to communicate and re-use each others' capabilities. SBW is a simple, high performance, open-source software infrastructure which is easy to implement and understand. SBW is also a collection of tools for Systems Biology encompassing the areas of modeling, simulation and visualization of biochemical networks. Main applications include: Jarnac, JDesigner for modeling and analysis and roadRunner for high performance simulations. (Link to project page)

Eric Billings billings @ NIH NHLBI, USA
QBT is a desktop application designed for biologists with proteomic, microarray and other data. QBT provides users with the ability to create their own models, adapt curated models and manage limited data sets within a single application. Users may perform different levels of model validation and conduct simulations for comparison to their data.

SABIO-RK is a database system offering information about biochemical reactions and their corresponding kinetics. It describes participants and modifiers of the reactions, as well as experimental kinetic data (including rate equations) embedded in their environmental context. The collected data is standardized to a uniform format and structure by using controlled vocabularies and algorithms to unify the data. Entities and expressions are annotated to other resources and biological ontologies. The data can be exported in SBML together with the annotations complying with the MIRIAM standard. SABIO-RK can be accessed by a web-interface or programmatically by web services. (Link to project page)

BioModels Database is a free resource for storing, viewing and retrieving published, peer-reviewed quantitative models of biochemical and cellular systems. Models are thoroughly curated and the model elements are annotated with terms from controlled vocabularies and links to relevant data resources. The model can be downloaded in various formats, which are SBML, CellML, BioPAX, SciLab, XPP and VCell. Enhanced web interface provides more explicit view of each model and online tool to generate sub-model. As a supplement, the Web Services of BioModels Database allows third-party software to directly access up-to-date data of models. (Link to project page)

Catherine Lloyd c.lloyd @ The University of Auckland, New Zealand
The CellML Model Repository ( is a database providing free access to over 330 biological models derived from published, peer-reviewed papers. These models describe a wide range of biological processes, including signal transduction pathways, metabolic pathways, electrophysiology, immunology, the cell cycle, muscle contraction, mechanical models and constitutive laws. CellML and the CellML Model Repository are an integral part of the IUPS Physiome Project. As the CellML community grows, there will be more users submitting their CellML models to the repository, and model curation and annotation will become essential to the maintenance of the CellML Model Repository as a useful resource.

We are developing iBioSim, a tool that supports learning of genetic circuit models, efficient abstraction-based analysis of these models, and the design of synthetic genetic circuits. Models can be created using our SBML editor that support virtually all of SBML L2V3 including reactions, rules, events, constraints, etc. iBioSim also includes an efficient analysis engine that supports ODE, stochastic, and Markov chain methods. Finally, iBioSim has a graphical editor for visualizing analysis results. iBioSim has been applied to numerous projects including an analysis of the phage lambda decision circuit, the E. coli Fim switch, and the design of a synthetic genetic Muller C-element.

PathText is developed to connect Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology to the graphs and diagrams that are used by biologists. The current prototype uses the Payao Web 2.0 community tagging system for biological networks as a web based UI to let the user quickly find text snippets and articles related to the different parts of the Pathway. Text Mining is done by the MEDIE, Facta and KLEIO systems. They rely on many databases and other enabling technologies like the Systems Biology Markup Language (SBML), Graphical Notation (SBGN) and the CellDesigner program which is used to show graphical models.
