    Release Name:  CellDesigner 3.0 (2005.10.15)
    Features:
    A new notation that enhanced previous process diagram into gene and RNA, as well as protein complex structure. Version 3.0 implements most part of notations described in Kitano, et al., "Using Process Diagram for Graphical Representation of Biochemical Networks", Nature Biotechnology, August 2005.

    CellDesigner3.0 supports simulation and parameter scan by an
    integration with SBML ODE Solver. By using CellDesigner3.0, you can browse and modify existing SBML models, create a new model with references to existing databases, simulate and view the dynamics through an intuitive graphical interface.

    Release Name:  CellDesigner 2.5 (Released 2005.9.1)
    Features:
  • Simulation and parameter scan feature by an integration
       with SBML ODE Solver (Thanks to Rainer Machne and Christoph Flamm)

  • New Database connection feature (iHOP)


  • CellDesigner2.5 supports simulation and parameter scan by an
    integration with SBML ODE Solver. Once you have installed
    CellDesigner2.5, you can browse and modify existing SBML models, simulate and view the dynamics through an intuitive graphical interface. The graphical notation scheme used in CellDesigner is based on a proposal by Kitano, et al. ("Using process diagrams for the graphical representation of biological networks",Nature Biotechnology 23(8), 961 - 966 (2005)).
    By using CellDesigner, you can create your model with references to existing databases, simulate and analyze the dynamics.

    Release Name:  CellDesigner ver3.0 alpha for Graphical Notation Preview (Released 2005.8.4)
    Features:
    CellDesigner 3.0 alpha release is a preview version of umcoming formal release. The intention of this preview release is to provide you with a feel of a new notation that enhanced previous process diagram into gene and RNA, as well as protein complex structure.

    Please note that functions of this preview versiion is substantially restricted as the sole purpose of the alpha release is to show the new notation. Version 3.0 implements most part of notations described in Kitano, et al., "Using Process Diagram for Graphical Representation of Biochemical Networks", Nature Biotechnology, August 2005.

    For any serious work, please use on-going version CellDesigner 2.2 (or 2.5 which will be released shortly).

    Note: you can NOT SAVE YOUR MODEL with this version.
    You can open and edit your SBML model (which includes a model created by CellDesigner 2.x). You can also export your model to image file (JPEG, PNG, SVG) for your publication, CSV and pure SBML file for simulation. The exported pure SBML file doesn't contain graphical information, but other information such as kinetic laws, parameters, initial concentrations etc. are stored.
