  \\item static analysers for inferring various dynamical properties from the structure of the model;
  \\item simulators for the different semantics: continuous (differential equations), stochastic, asynchronous Boolean;
  \\item a temporal logic based language to formalize the temporal behaviours of
    biological systems, validate models with respect to such specifications by model-checking methods,
    infer parameter values in high dimension with temporal logic constraints,
    measure parameter sensitivity indices and robustness of temporal properties;
