Gene Regulatory Network Generator in Julia (JUGRNModelGenerator)


The JUGRNModelGenerator.jl package is a code generation system that transforms simple JSON descriptions of the connectivity of gene regulatory networks into model code written in the Julia programming language. JUGRNModelGeneratorModelGenerator.jl has been used in the publications:

to generate gene regulatory network code.

Installation and Requirements

JUGRNModelGenerator.jl is organized as a Julia package which can be installed in the package mode of Julia.

Start of the Julia REPL and enter the package mode using the ] key (to get back press the backspace or ^C keys). Then, at the prompt enter:

(v1.1) pkg> add JUGRNModelGenerator

This will install the JUGRNModelGenerator.jl package and the other required packages. JUGRNModelGenerator.jl requires Julia 1.6.x and above. JUGRNModelGenerator.jl is open source. You can download this repository as a zip file, or clone or pull it by using the command (from the command-line):

$ git pull https://github.com/varnerlab/JUGRNModelGenerator.jl.git


$ git clone https://github.com/varnerlab/JUGRNModelGenerator.jl.git
