What System Biologists can find under the SYCAMORE tree

23.10.2008
Finding answers to the complexity of questions emerging in modern biology requires the use of quantitative, computational approaches.

Mathematical modelling is a critical component of systems biology studies of biochemical networks. However, the use and applicability of computational methods in systems biology is often hampered by the complexity of the software tools available for the modelling and simulation tasks.

SYCAMORE stands for a SYstems biology Computational Analysis and MOdeling Research Environment. It has been developed in order to support the user, particularly the non-expert user, in setting up, simulating and analysing biochemical models.

SYCAMORE is a web browser-based application that facilitates construction, simulation and analysis of kinetic models in systems biology. Functions include database supported modeling, basic model checking, model simulation and the estimation of unknown kinetic parameters based on protein structures.

It interfaces with other tools such as the COPASI Complex Pathway Simulator (www.copasi.org) and databases such as BRENDA (www.brenda-enzymes.info) and SABIO-RK (sabio.villa-bosch.de/SABIORK) which contain enzymatic kinetic data. In addition, it offers guidance in order to allow non-expert users to perform basic computational modelling tasks.

SYCAMORE is freely available for academic use at http://sycamore.eml.org.
Commercial users may acquire a license.
SYCAMORE is a joint project of the Molecular and Cellular Modeling Group
(MCM) and Scientific Databases and Visualization Group (SDBV) at EML
Research, as well as the department for Modeling of Biological Processes
at the University of Heidelberg. The development of SYCAMORE is
supported by the Klaus Tschira Foundation and the German Ministry of
Research and Education (BMBF) (HepatoSys Grant 0313078C).

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
