Talk Reaction kinetics at many scales with SloppyCell

Abstract

In order to model the dynamics of complex biochemical kinetic networks in living cells, as well as the sensitivities of those dynamics to model parameters, we have built SloppyCell, a Python/SciPy-based software system (sloppycell.sourceforge.net). SloppyCell makes extensive use of symbolic mathematics and automatic code generation to enable the study of arbitrary kinetic networks. I will highlight some of these features, and discuss our initial efforts in extending its capabilities to address reaction kinetics of a different sort at a much larger scale, namely that describing the spread of infectious diseases through heterogeneous populations, which will require integration with tools for dealing with contact and transportation networks, geographic information systems, and weather and climate data.
