Researchers in quantitative systems biology make use of a large number of different software packages for modelling, analysis, visualization, and general data manipulation. In this paper, we describe the Systems Biology Workbench (SBW), a software framework that allows heterogeneous application components--written in diverse programming languages and(More)
The singing of juvenile songbirds is highly variable and not well stereotyped, a feature that makes it difficult to analyze with existing computational techniques. We present here a method suitable for analyzing such vocalizations, windowed spectral pattern recognition (WSPR). Rather than performing pairwise sample comparisons, WSPR measures the typicality(More)
The usual form of the Problem-Oriented Medical Record is primarily focused on the individual, and thus has serious deficiencies for the family-oriented physician. This paper presents a practical, office-tested medical charting system that incorporates features of the Problem-Oriented Medical Record and allows the recording of aspects of the family situation(More)
As a contribution to the BioSPICE project, we have developed an optimization module , for the task of fitting kinetic rate constants to time series concentration data. The algorithms use, both local searches, such as the Levenberg-Marquardt, and simplex, as well as global search methods such as simulated annealing and real coded genetic algorithms. We(More)
