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: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
