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: Breakthrough with a chain of gold atoms

In the field of nanoscience, an international team of physicists with participants from Konstanz has achieved a breakthrough in understanding heat transport

Im Focus: DNA repair: a new letter in the cell alphabet

Results reveal how discoveries may be hidden in scientific “blind spots”

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
