Systems biology software day for me

I’m in Göteborg today, at the ICSB International Conference on Systems Biology. I’m taking a couple of the tutorials today. My first one is on the Edinburgh Pathway Editor or EPE (description of this can be found in this PDF of the session). They have made available a 2.0 version for the attendees here. I’m eager to learn more about this.

The next session I signed up for is CellDesigner 4.0. You can learn more about it from the session PDF here.

Both of these tools require downloading and installation. We usually focus more on web-based software, but these systems biology tools often require you to install and run it locally. You can get the software directly from these sites:

Edinburgh Pathway Editor: http://www.bioinformatics.ed.ac.uk/epe/index.shtml

CellDesigner: http://celldesigner.org/

Have fun! I expect I’ll post more thoughts on them after I have had a chance to dive in and swim around some.
