|advantage for model builders|
simplicity and reliability Scientists specify the biology and modeling assumptions, and rely on theoretical components to generate correct mathematics.
transparency An interactive environment and readable/writeable syntax make the relationship between mathematics and the complex objects of a biological system transparent, enhancing debugging and verification.
versatility The core language enables new modeling approaches and scientific concepts to be specified.
reusability Models can be quickly and automatically assembled from modular parts, enabling users to explore combinations of theoretical and biological assumptions.
sharability Users share and build on each others work rather than writing each model from scratch.
readability Experimentalists and theorists share a common human-readable language for model building.
