Antimony is a human-readable and human-writable language for describing biological modules. The modules can be connected together by declaring overlapping molecular species between two modules or via the PoPS in/PoPS out interface. The language is similar to the Jarnac language introduced by Herbert Sauro several years ago.

Athena is a tool for building, simulating, and analyzing genetic circuits (as well as metabolic/signaling networks, such as SBML files). It provides a visual interface for building biological modules that can be saved and later connected together. The connection can be achieved using either the PoPS interface or by defining overlapping molecular species (similar to the concept of module in CellML and SBML). In addition to simulation, Athena supports a few other useful features: Database of Ecoli regulatory network from RegulonDB, Graphical view of part sequence, Automated derivation of transcription rate equations, Interface to all Systems Biology Workbench programs, Interface with R statistical language, Easy plugin architecture

BioJADE is a design and simulation tool for synthetic biological systems. BioJADE is written in Java, and makes interactive use of BioBrick Repositories. BioJADE enables system designers to specify a system abstractly, tune it, simulate its behavior using a variety of simulators, and finally package the part for use by either the designer or the public.


http://brickit.wiki.sourceforge.net/ Raik Gruenberg and you?

BrickIt aims to create a portable web-based registry that helps synthetic biologists to plan, organize and track their local biobrick samples. The database-backed web server can be downloaded as virtual machine to quickly set up a local registry which coordinates the work within a lab, institute or community. Although the data remain local, the web server itself is an open-source project and new functions or improvements can be easily exchanged between the different local registries. BrickIt thus also offers a platform for the shared development of tools and infrastructure that foster the collaboration within the Synthetic Biology community. BrickIt and everything it relies on are open source and free. BrickIt itself is licensed under the GPL.


http://www.genedesign.org Sarah Richardson, Joel Bader, Jef Boeke GeneDesign is a suite of algorithms that allow users to edit several features of protein coding sequences, including codon usage and restriction enzyme recognition site presence. It will then generate a list of oligos and a road map for the assembly of the sequence by PCR It is written in Perl and is served over the internet; the code is available for local installations. A new, improved version is due before the end of 2008.

GenoCAD is a web-based application guiding users through the design of part-based genetic systems. GenoCAD uses context-free grammars to formalize design strategies for synthetic genetic systems. This approach provides a path to organizing libraries of genetic parts according to their biological functions. It also provides a framework for the systematic design of new genetic constructs consistent with the design principles expressed in the grammar. Using parsing algorithms, GenoCAD enables the verification of existing constructs.doi:10.1093/bioinformatics/btm446
