After several years of development and extensive piloting in organizations
such as Pfizer, AstraZeneca and the Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center,
Teranode Corporation (http://www.teranode.com), have released the first
product suite which includes a product named VLX Biological Modeler, which
I think will be of much interest to you.
VLX Biological Modeler is a commercial-quality software product for the
modeling and simulation of biological systems. VLX Biological Modeler is
for creating and annotating visual models of complex biological systems;
performing simulations to explore and predict dynamic system behaviors;
and for analyzing experimental data with models for hypothesis testing.
Some of VLX Biological Modeler's highlights include:
a. Powerful Graph Editor for easy construction of models of biochemical
b. SBML Support makes over 10,000 pathway models from KEGG databases readily
c. Full Hierarchical Modeling Support allows large-scale, integrative models
to be constructed and manipulated through "copy-and-paste" and "drag-and-drop"
of reusable model components.
d. Automatic generation of simulation models of algebraic/ODE systems based
on biochemical and biophysical principles.
e. Text-based interface for creating non-procedural mathematical models
f. Open modeling language and modeling system for user customizations and
g. Project support allows the workspace of multiple models and datasets to
be saved as a single project file for persistence and communication.
h. Seamless integration with Teranode's server product for large-scale,
multi-site collaborative work backed by user-selected database systems and VLX
Research Designer, Teranode's tool for the design, execution and documentation
of experimental protocols.
The complete list of features and capabilities, as well as a set of
example models are available to you at
