The research group of Prof. Elias Manolakos has developed a unique internet service for efficient parallel stochastic simulation of biological large scale networks, with thousands of nodes and interactions of biomolecules. The web service (stochsocs.di.uoa.gr) allows remote users to send kinetic models (for metabolic, signaling, regulatory networks) in the form οφ SBML files to be simulated stochasticaly and automatically in the service's back end. Parallel simulations are performed using the algorithms of Gillespie and Gibson & Brucks in application specific Systems on Chip accelerators implemented by FPGAs.
This is the most efficient FPGA implementation of high performance stochastic simulation for large scale biomolecular reaction networks, used in system biology for rational drug design.
The service is available for research purposes after registration.
