Java Web Simulation (JWS); a web based database of kinetic models

Mol Biol Rep. 2002;29(1-2):259-63. doi: 10.1023/a:1020350518131.


Software to make a database of kinetic models accessible via the internet has been developed and a core database has been set up at This repository of models, available to everyone with internet access, opens a whole new way in which we can make our models public. Via the database, a user can change enzyme parameters and run time simulations or steady state analyses. The interface is user friendly and no additional software is necessary. The database currently contains 10 models, but since the generation of the program code to include new models has largely been automated the addition of new models is straightforward and people are invited to submit their models to be included in the database.
