Parameters and Functions

Users can define parameters to aid in modeling their virtual experiments or applications. User-defined parameters can be added at the physiology level either as global parameters or as reaction parameters. There are other predefined parameters such as species initial conditions, structure sizes or reaction rates for the different kinetic types that are generated as the model is being developed, for which the user has to provide values. The parameter values can be numeric or expressions involving other allowable variables in the model. Parameter values that are expressions are referred to as Functions in the Virtual Cell.
