Cellular Dynamic Simulator
The Cellular Dynamic Simulator (CDS) was designed to simulate diffusion and chemical reactions within crowded molecular environments. CDS employs an event-driven algorithm that allows precise calculation of the timing of collisions, reactions and other events for each molecule in the environment. With the CDS, we can simulate simple enzyme reactions, aggregation, channel transport, as well as highly complicated chemical reaction networks of both freely diffusing and membrane-bound multi-protein complexes.
Visit the CDS page for more information.
Simulator for Neural Networks and Action Potentials (SNNAP)
SNNAP is a tool for rapid development and simulation of realistic models of single neurons and neural networks. It includes mathematical descriptions of ion currents and intracellular second messengers and ions. In addition, you can simulate current flow in multicompartment models of neurons by using the equations describing electric coupling.
