sb2l Translates the biological models written in SBML into LaTeX code to be compiled and read by human eye

Project description



Translates biological models written in SBML into LaTeX code to be compiled and read by human eye


The current version runs 1.3.1 version of PyLaTeX

Either Tellurium or python-libsbml is also required

For PDF creation functionality, either latexmk or pdflatex needs to be installed on the computer


pip install sb2l

How to Use

The following structure gives a LaTeX string that can be copied to a online compiler like Overleaf:

import sb2l
latexStr = sb2l.s2string(sbmlStringOrFile)

If using with Tellurium or Antimony:

import sb2l
latexStr = sb2l.s2latex(model_name.getSBML())

For making PDF files (The filepath must NOT have a .pdf or .tex suffix)

import sb2l
filepath = "/Users/Username/Desktop/theDesiredNameOfFile" #[NOTICE: no ".anything"]
sb2l.s2pdf(sbmlStringOrFile, file_path = filepath);

The same structure can be used to generate a .tex file if used with sb2l.s2latex

To generate the PDF file and open with the default PDF reader

import sb2l
filepath = "/Users/Username/Desktop/theDesiredNameOfFile" #[NOTICE: no ".anything"]
sb2l.s2open(sbmlStringOrFile, file_path = filepath);
