To facilitate the dissemination of our work, we conducted two online tutorials on how to use the Framework Model on the 2nd and 5th of December 2014. These tutorials were intended for plants scientists, systems biologists and modellers, to whom we introduced the FM and our online resources. A total of 12 participants from across Europe and America attended the sessions, where we demonstrated the protocols to run the Framework model on the Simile graphical modelling software. Participants were also guided
through a few exercises that alter environmental conditions such as light and temperature, and the genotype of the plant, together with some pointers on working with the simulation results.
