Bio Simulators: a web UI for biological simulation.


A host of formal, textual languages for modeling cellular processes have recently emerged, but their simulation tools often require an installation process which can pose a barrier for use. Bio Simulators is a framework for easy online deployment of simulators, providing a uniform web-based user interface to a diverse pool of tools. The framework is demonstrated through two plugins based on the KaSim Kappa simulator, one running directly in the browser and another running in the cloud.Web tool: KaSim client side simulator: KaSim cloud simulator: or SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.
