About us

The SEEK software is developed by a team at the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom, and the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies in Germany. Katy Wolstencroft was originally involved with SEEK at the University of Manchester, but has since moved to the University of Leiden where she continues to be involved.

SEEK is being funded by the BBSRC in the UK, and the BMBF in Germany, as part of the SysMO-DB project.

Below are the people that are, or have been, involved in creating SEEK. Of course we are also highly grateful to the input and feedback provided by all our users, and the SysMO PALs in particular.
