This example uses the model described in Model of the Yeast Heterotrimeric G Protein Cycle to illustrate SimBiology® sensitivity analysis options.


Sensitivity Analysis in SimBiology

Sensitivity analysis lets you explore the effects of variations in model quantities (species, compartments, and parameters) on a model response.

Model Simulation

Simulate dynamic models using various solvers.

Accelerating Model Simulations and Analyses

Accelerate the simulation or analysis by converting the model to compiled C code.
