TinkerCell is a Computer-Aided Design (CAD) tool for synthetic biology. Since synthetic biology is a rapidly evolving field, here are the issues which were taken into consideration when designing TinkerCell:
In summary, TinkerCell is designed with the anticipation that the future of synthetic biology will be an intricate interplay between a variety of experimental techniques, databases that store results from experiments, and mathematical models explaining different aspects of the experiments. The use-case of the ideal CAD program would be like this: step 1: user draws a biological system step 2: user performs some analysis step 3: go back to step 1 if analysis is not satisfactory The analysis step can potentially include:
It is too much to have all of these functions in TinkerCell from the start. So TinkerCell uses a flexible plug-in framework, which will allow others to contribute new functions to TinkerCell. The plug-ins can be written in C, C++, Python, or Octave. Other languages, e.g. Java, might also get added to this list. The basic idea behind TinkerCell is to represent a diagram that is detailed enough so that it can be mapped to models or experimental results. A human researcher is able to connect models and experiments because they are able to link them using a conceptual understanding of the system. TinkerCell enables that capability in software.
