For a network of coupled reactions Pysces does a stoichiometric matrix analysis, does a complete control analysis and calculates the time course and steady state.
Here are some key features of "Pysces":
· Input via a text based model description language.
· A structural analysis module.
· Integrators for the simulation of a cellular system's evolution over time (LSODA).
· Non-linear solvers that can be used to calculate a systems steady state (HYBRD, NLEQ2).
· A module for performing Metabolic Control Analysis (i.e. elasticities, flux and concentration control coeffcients).
· A bifurcation module for the study of systems which exhibit multiple (stable and unstable) steady states (PITCON)
· A variety of extra utilites such for performing parameter scans, data output and plotting.
· A dynamic module loading framework.
· SBML import and export capability.
· PySCeS is developed as Open Source software, is distributed under the GNU General Public Licence and uses the Scientific Libraries for Python: SciPy.
