Tabular interface designed to easily create
and simulate models, inspired by biological thinking
COSBI LAB Model is a new, rule-based modeling tool for biological systems, in which interactions between components are specified by using an intelligible, narrative language.
Simple, tabular interface designed for non-experts (no programming or special mathematical skills required)
Design biological interactions with different levels of abstraction
Integrated, stochastic simulation engine for in silico experiments
Sensitivity analysis on kinetic parameters
Integrated visualization tools like Plot, Plot Matrix and Graph
