This page supports "Photosynthesis in silico" book of the Springer Series "Advances in Photosynthesis and Respiration".

This site provides an open platform to present selected models from the "Photosynthesis in silico" book. With a prior consent of the authors, the models are translated to Systems Biology Mark-up Language (SBML) formal ( The on-line simulation of photosynthetic dynamics is also possible.

As a guest user, you are welcome to browse and exploit the presented models. You can do this by clicking on the "Projects" button in the top menubar. On-line help is accessible by moving the cursor to the question mark in the upper-right corner of the project screen.

Registered users are provided customization features of the model simulation. To become a registered user, please create your user account by clicking on the Register item in the authentication form in the upper-left corner of the page.
