RuleBender: Visual Debuggers for Diagram-Based Biological Models

Themes People Videos Talks Sponsors Publications Bibliography

Status: Active

This project develops interaction and visualization paradigms to allow the collaborative development of diagram-based computational biology models. Such models draw on the expertise of biologists, who are not necessarily experts in mathematical modeling, while providing the deeper insights into the simulation process that are needed for such tasks as model and simulation debugging, and overall understanding of molecular systems.
