is a powerful tool that meets a very real need for biologists,"
explained Dr. Brent. "It is a critical step forward in our quest to
provide an accurate simulation of intracellular biochemical networks."
"I've designed Moleculizer to be intuitive for biologists," said Dr.
Larry Lok, a mathematician who conceived and programmed Moleculizer.
"Its parallel simplifications in simulation setup and output provide
data in a way that is meaningful and useful to biological researchers."
Moleculizer was developed in the context of MSI's "Alpha Project", an
ambitious experimental and computational effort to understand the
quantitative behavior of a cell signaling pathway in yeast. The Alpha
Project is funded by the National Institutes of Health's National Human
Genome Research Institute, which designated MSI as a Center of
Excellence in Genomic Research. The CEGS program supports
multi-investigator, interdisciplinary research teams
