Formal specification of the PURE system in the QDC input language: This file contains, in ASCII format, an example of the complete input file for a PURE system containing liposomes. Accordingly with QDC syntax, the file is divided into blocks: the first contains the declaration of the chemical species present in the system; the second block contains the vesicle volume; the third block contains the chemical reactions that can take place (each is described as: "k, R1 + R2 > P1 + P2", where k is the deterministic kinetic coefficient, R1 and R2 are the reagents; P1 and P2 are the products); the fourth (and last) block contains the initial number of molecules for each chemical species.
