NAME ^

Bio::Cellucidate - Perl library for cellucidate.com

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Cellucidate;

  # Search for a bookshelf, returns an array of bookshelf hashes
  $bookshelves = Bio::Cellucidate::Bookshelf->find();
  $bookshelves = Bio::Cellucidate::Bookshelf->find( { name => 'Reference 10' });

  # Single bookshelf
  $bookshelf = Bio::Cellucidate::Bookshelf->show(102);

  # Bookshelf properties
  $bookshelf->{id}   # => 102
  $bookshelf->{name} # => 'Reference 10'


  # All books on a bookshelf
  $books = $bookshelf->books();

  # Search for a book
  $books = Bio::Cellucidate::Book->find( ... );

  # Search for models..
  $models = Bio::Cellucidate::Model->find( ... );

  # Single model
  $model = Bio::Cellucidate::Model->show( id );

  # All models in a book
  $model = Bio::Cellucidate::Book->models( book_id );

  # All model rules in a model
  $model_rules = Bio::Cellucidate::Model->model_rules( model_id );

  # All initial conditions in a model
  $initial_conditions = Bio::Cellucidate::Model->initial_conditions( model_id );

  # All simulation runs in a model
  $simulation_runs = Bio::Cellucidate::Model->simulation_runs( model_id );

  # Create a simulation run for a model
  $simulation_run_params = { "model_id" => $model_id  };
  $simulation_run = Bio::Cellucidate::SimulationRun->create($simulation_run_params);

  $csv_data = Bio::Cellucidate::SimulationRun->get($simulation_run_id, 'csv');

  $plots = Bio::Cellucidate::SimulationRun->plots($simulation_run_id);

  $plots = $simulation_run->plots();  # Bio::Cellucidate::Plot->find( { simulation_run_id => $id } );

DESCRIPTION ^

Cellucidate is a tool for computation biologists to run simulations. It is based on the Kappa language.

The various objects in Cellucidate are arranged into a book metaphor. The basic hierarchy is:

  Bookshelves
  `-> Books
      `-> Agents
      `-> Rules
      `-> Models
          `-> Model Rules
          `-> Initial Conditions
          `-> Rule Observables
          `-> Solution Observables
          `-> Simulation Runs
              `-> Ode Results
              `-> Plots
                  `-> Series

Additionally, there are a few resources for auxiliary tasks, like importing data and running various jobs Cellucidate::KappaImportJob.

REST

Cellucidate has a RESTful interface. So this library is built upon the REST::Client library. At the core, there are 4 operations over HTTP, including: GET, POST, PUT and DELETE. The encoding is primarily XML, but certain resource can be returned in CSV and Kappa (application/x-kappa).

COMMON METHODS / PATTERN

Around each resource, there are convience methods -

    find( { params }, format)
    get(id, format)
    update(id, { data }, format)
    create({ data }, format)

See each subclass for a list of specific methods and examples

CONFIGURATION ^

There are two variables that should be set. These are used by all subclasses.

$Bio::Cellucidate::CONFIG

This is a hash of configuration options for the underling REST client. See REST::Client for more information.

    $Bio::Cellucidate::CONFIG = { host => 'http://api.cellucidate.com' };
$Bio::Cellucidate::AUTH

This is a hash of your authentication information from cellucidate.com. It includes your email address as your login and API Key.

    $Bio::Cellucidate::AUTH = { login => 'email@host.com', api_key => '111111' };

SUBCLASSES ^

Bio::Cellucidate::Base

Base class for each resource.

Bio::Cellucidate::Bookshelf

Represents a Bookshelf in Cellucidate. This is pretty much the top tier of cellucidate resources.

Bio::Cellucidate::Book

Represents a Book in Cellucidate. This is where Models live. A book can be placed on a Bookshelf and has many Models.

Bio::Cellucidate::Agent

Represents an agent in Cellucidate. Agents are used by rules and initial conditions and solution observables. Books have zero, one or many agents and an agent belongs to a book.

Bio::Cellucidate::Rule

Represents a rule in Cellucidate. Books have zero, one or many rules and a rule belongs to a book. Models have Rules through the ModelRule resource.

Bio::Cellucidate::Model

Represents a biological model in Cellucidate. The model belongs to a book and contains a number of Model Rules and Initial Conditions. A number of simulations can be run from a Model, each having a number of settings.

Bio::Cellucidate::ModelRule

Represents a Rule that is used my a model. Model rules belong to a model and models have one or more typically many model rules. ModelRules have an association to Rules.

Bio::Cellucidate::SolutionObservable

Represents an Agent or set of Agents that you want to observe and plot the concentration of when the simulation is run.

Bio::Cellucidate::RuleObservable

Represents a ModelRule that you want to observe the activity of when the simulation is run.

Bio::Cellucidate::InitialCondition

This is an initial condition in a model. Models have one by more typically many initial conditions and an initial condition belongs to a model.

Bio::Cellucidate::SimulationRun

A simulation run represents an execution of the Cellucidate simulator and contains child result resources. Simulation runs define various settings. A Model has one or many simulation runs and a simulation run belongs to a model.

Bio::Cellucidate::OdeResult

Represents the set of ODE formulas generated when running a simulation in ODE-mode. The results can be used directly in MATLAB.

Bio::Cellucidate::Plot

A plot contains a single time series and a number of data series representing the rule and solution observables. A simulation run has one or many plots (one for each iteration).

Bio::Cellucidate::Series

A collection of datapoints. A series belongs to a plot and represents an observable or time.

Bio::Cellucidate::KappaImportJob

This is a resource that represents an import job. This allows the creation of a Book, including Model Rules and Initial Conditions, from a Kappa string.

Bio::Cellucidate::Request

This is the request client, a subclass of REST::Client. This isn't a cellucidate resource.
