Tabasco is a simulator created to address the problem of simulating gene expression at single-base resolution. Tabasco avoids previous ‘combinatorial explosion’ problems by tracking the position and state of proteins and genetic elements on the DNA to dynamically generate appropriate reactions, such as promoters being blocked by traversing polymerases. In order to improve computational efficiency, Tabasco makes use of a Gibson-accelerated Gillespie SSA to compute the reaction event timing and the resultant time-evolution of the genetic system.
