CAT goes ICSB

We’ll be joining the COMBINE team at ICSB 2015 as tutors this year. During the COMBINE tutorial on modeling and simulation tools and standards, we’ll be giving a talk about the COMBINE Archive and the COMBINE Archive Web Tools. The talk will be followed by a hands-on session in the afternoon. Date: 25th November, 2015. […]

CaRoWeb: now including ?remote= and redirect=checkout

We just updated the CaRoWeb interface. This update brings two brand-new options to the conversion requestions: ?remote= downloads containers from other web servers In addition to the famous HTTP-POST-conversion you can now supply a link to a container that’s to be converted, e.g.: 1curl ‘http://SERVER/caro?remote=http://scripts.sems.uni-rostock.de/getshowcase.php’ the value supplied to the ?remote= gets interpreted as a […]

SEMS group retreat 2015

We’re on a retreat in lovely Greifswald this week. Besides all the social and group building activities, we evaluate and discuss possibilities to provide metadata for computational models and COMBINE Archives. The idea is to harmonise current approaches to metadata annotation in SBML, CellML, COMBINE Archive, etc.

Bachelor Thesis completed: Visualising sub-networks in SBML models

Last week, Tom Gebhart successfully defended his Bachelor’s Thesis on “Visual-interactive support for detecting submodules in SBML Models”. In his thesis, he developed a tool that displays SBML reaction networks using Anchored Maps. Users can define submodules of interest, or choose from a pre-defined set of motifs. His algorithm then detects all occurrences of these […]
