The new version of JarnacLite, that is distributed with SBW 2.8.1 finally helps out in the arduous task of entering the kinetics. By using a customizable list of kinetic rate laws, it is now rather easy to construct models in this simple script format.
There are two steps to using this assistance:
- Enter the reaction scheme: In order to be able to filter the available rate laws, a reaction scheme needs to be present. Special note should be given to the reversible notation:
S1 –> S2
would mean that a species S1 is converted to S2, while
S1 => S2
would mean that this reaction is reversible. Different kinetics will be suggested.
- Once the reaction scheme is entered, pressing CTRL+SPACE or clicking the ‘Edit kinetic’ button will bring up the rate law selection dialog.
- All that is left to do after selecting a rate law is to adjust the parameters.
And here an example of how this looks in practice:
