Overview of this tutorial
This short tutorial introduces the main steps to get started with GINsim:
the specification of a regulatory graph, illustrated through a simple model of the lysis-lysogeny decision in the phage lambda,
the simulation of this model (i.e the construction of the state transition graph),
the use of some of the available analysis tools.
Starting GINsim and creating a new model
Upon launch, GINsim will present the following New graph action to create a new model and open the main window.. Select the
The GINsim main window is divided into three distinct regions: the upper part, where you can find the menus and buttons containing the actions valid on the graph type current being visualised; the middle part, where you can find the graph; and the lower part, where you can change modelling and graphical attributes of the graph or its components.
