A Python Environment for Reproducible Dynamical Modeling of Biological Networks
Tellurium is a Python package that knits together a variety of important packages for carrying out simulation studies in systems biology and other disciplines.
Tellurium provides an interface to the powerful high-performance libroadrunner simulation engine.
Tellurium allows you to build your models using an easy-to-use human-readable version of SBML called Antimony (see also https://github.com/sys-bio/antimony). Antimony Tutorial
Tellurium supports all the major standards such as SBML, SED-ML, and COMBINE archives.
Tellurium can be used via GUI front-ends such as Spyder, PyCharm, or Jupyter Notebooks (including CoLab) with support for advanced productivity and interactive editing features
Installation is via standard pip installation. We also provide a one-click installer for Windows uses which provides a complete environment for systems biology modeling
Tellurium runs on Windows, Mac OS and Linux.
