Kinetic modelling and simulation is an important approach in systems biology. While the focus of current modelling tools is on simulation, model development is a highly iterative process which is currently only partly supported. To support the development of biochemical models, their simulation, and graphical understanding, we designed and implemented SyBME, the Systems Biology Modelling Environment. Here we present the architecture and the main components of SyBME and show its use by modelling sucrose breakdown in developing potato tubers.
