Bio-SPICE

Bio-SPICE: Biological Simulation Program for Intra- and Inter-Cellular Evaluation
 
Bio-SPICE, an open source framework and software toolset for Systems Biology, is intended to assist biological researchers in the modeling and simulation of spatio-temporal processes in living cells. In addition, our goal is to develop and serve a user community committed to using, extending, and exploiting these tools to further our knowledge of biological processes.

In collaboration with other Bio-SPICE, Community members, we will develop, license, distribute, and maintain a comprehensive software environment that integrates a suite of analytical, simulation, and visualization tools and services to aid biological researchers engaged in building computable descriptions of cellular functions. From disparate data analysis and information mining to experimental validation of computational models of cell systems, our environment will offer a comprehensive substrate for efficient research, collaboration, and publication.

Mission
Bio-SPICE, is intended for modeling and simulation of spatio-temporal processes in living cells. The goals of Bio-SPICE, are to support discovery through:
  1. Developing computational and mathematical models of bio-molecular systems in cells capturing the nature of gene-protein interactions
  2. Developing tools that can rapidly incorporate relevant experimental data and knowledge known in the literature to build models of pathways, networks, and spatial processes
  3. Developing simulation tools for the dynamic analysis of bio-molecular systems
  4. Creating an extensible framework for easy insertion of models and their refinement, as well as customization to specific mechanisms
In addition, our goal is to develop and serve a user community committed to using, extending, and exploiting these tools to further our knowledge of biological processes. In collaboration with other Bio-SPICE Community members, we will develop, license, distribute, and maintain a comprehensive software environment that integrates a suite of analytical, simulation, and visualization tools and services to aid biological researchers engaged in building computable descriptions of cellular functions.
