Glycolysis: Study Oscillations in Yeast Cells

Glycolytic oscillations in yeast cells of the species Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a well-studied phenomenon. This example simulates the oscillations near a so-called Hopf bifurcation. Changing a parameter slightly around the bifurcation point qualitatively changes the behavior of the system.

To run this example, you'll need

SystemModeler 3.

Please make a selection:

Import SBML Models

Easily import the model in the Systems Biology Markup Language (SBML) format.

Simulate Different Scenarios

Compare how small changes in the bifurcation parameter affect the oscillations of protein and molecule concentrations.
