iNA is a computational tool for quantitative analysis of fluctuations in biochemical reaction networks. Such fluctuations, also known as intrinsic noise, arise due to the stochastic nature of chemical reactions and cannot be ignored for when some molecules are present only in very low copy numbers as is the case in living cells. The SBML-based software computes statistical measures such as means and standard deviations of concentrations within a given accuracy using the analytical system size expansion. The result of iNA’s analysis can be tested against the computationally much more expensive stochastic simulation algorithm.
QtIPy is a simple GUI-based automator for IPython notebooks. It allows you to attach triggers to files, folders, or timers to automatically run notebooks. IPython notebooks are great for interactively working through analysis problems, so why would you want to automatically run them? To get a record of how you ran your analysis! By running a notebook through QtIPy you get the output, figures, and a step by step log of how the analysis was performed all in the same folder.
