rootObjReturn sbioroot to this object.


rootObj = sbioroot returns the SimBiology® root object to root. The SimBiology root object contains a list of the SimBiology model objects, available units, unit prefixes, and available kinetic laws.

The units define the set of built-in units and user-defined units. See Unit object for more information.

The unit prefixes define the set of built-in prefixes and user-defined prefixes. See Unit Prefix object for more information.

The kinetic laws define the built-in kinetic laws and user-defined kinetic laws. See AbstractKineticLaw object for more information.

To add a unit, prefix or kinetic law to the root (in the user-defined library), use the sbioaddtolibrary function. To remove, use sbioremovefromlibrary.

The models opened in the SimBiology desktop are stored in the root object.
