The whole-cell model generator generates synthetic whole-cell model descriptions that are used to test downstream components of the whole-cell (WC) modeling pipeline. In particular, these synthetic models can be used to test model description systems and model simulators.
To test modeling pipeline components, synthetic WC models are better than WC models of real cells for several reasons:
- Synthetic models are scalable
- Synthetic models can have unusual properties
- Synthetic models can be generated quickly
This initial version of the model generator creates reaction network models.
