Examples

  1. Create a model containing three species in one compartment.

    modelObj = sbiomodel('mymodel');
    compObj = addcompartment(modelObj, 'comp1');
    A = addspecies(compObj, 'A');
    B = addspecies(compObj, 'B');
    C = addspecies(compObj, 'C');
  2. Add a variant object that varies the species' InitialAmount property.

    variantObj = addvariant(modelObj, 'v1');
    addcontent(variantObj, {{'species','A', 'InitialAmount', 5}, ...
    {'species', 'B', 'InitialAmount', 10}});
    % Display the variant
    variantObj
    
    SimBiology Variant - v1 (inactive)
    
       ContentIndex:     Type:        Name:             Property:           Value:
       1                 species      A                 InitialAmount       5
       2                 species      B                 InitialAmount       10
    
  3. Append data to the Content property.

    addcontent(variantObj, {'species', 'C', 'InitialAmount', 15});
    SimBiology Variant - v1 (inactive)
    
       ContentIndex:     Type:        Name:             Property:           Value:
       1                 species      A                 InitialAmount        5
       2                 species      B                 InitialAmount       10
       3                 species      C                 InitialAmount       15
  4. Remove a species from the Content property.

    rmcontent(variantObj, 3);
  5. Replace the data in the Content property.

    set(variantObj, 'Content', {'species', 'C', 'InitialAmount', 15});
