MATLAB is popular in biological research for creating and simulating models that use ordinary differential equations (ODEs). However, sharing or using these models outside of MATLAB is often problematic. A community standard such as SBML (Systems Biology Markup Language) can serve as a neutral exchange format, but translating models from MATLAB to SBML can be challenging - especially for legacy models not written with translation in mind. We developed MOCCASIN (Model ODE Converter for Creating Automated SBML INteroperability) to help. MOCCASIN can convert ODE-based MATLAB models of biochemical reaction networks into the SBML format.<br /><br />AVAILABILITY AND IMPLEMENTATION: MOCCASIN is available under the terms of the LGPL 2.1 license ( Source code, binaries and test cases can be freely obtained from<br /><br />SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: More information is available at<br /><br />CONTACT:
