First generation whole-cell models and whole-cell modeling tools
  • Whole-cell model of Mycoplasma genitalium
    First whole-cell model of the bacterium M. genitalium. Includes MATLAB simulation code, training data, and MATLAB code for analysis of whole-cell simulations.
  • WholeCellKB
    Web-based software for creating model organism databases for whole-cell models. Implemented in Python using the Django framework.
  • WholeCellSimDB
    Database for storing and retrieving whole-cell simulations. Implemented in Python using the Django framework, h5py, and MySQL. Includes a web-based user interface developed using flot.
  • WholeCellViz
    Web-based software for exploratory data analysis of whole-cell simulations. Implemented in JavaScript using jQuery, flot, and three.js.
Integrated models (precursor to whole-cell models)
Integrated flux-balance analysis (iFBA)
Provides MATLAB code and results for a computational model of E. coli which integrates an ordinary differential equation model of central carbon metabolism, a flux-balance analysis model of all of metabolism, and a Boolean model of transcriptional regulation.

Graphical user interface for easily creating signaling network diagrams animated with biomolecular data. Exports signaling diagrams to various formats including Flash. Provides all ActionScript and PHP code.

MATLAB utilities

Utilities for representing N-dimensional sparse matrices; representing chemical formulae; reading and writing .mat files; differencing .mat files and struct; querying MySQL databases; logging unit test results; and generating coverage reports.

Instructional materials
