Virtual Cell (V-Cell) demonstration to follow in Whitaker 318
VCell  (Virtual Cell) -- a unique computational environment for modeling and simulation of cell biology that is deployed as a distributed application freely available  over the Internet. It is designed as a tool for a wide range of scientists, from experimental cell biologists to theoretical biophysicists. The creation of biological or mathematical models can range from the simple, to evaluate hypotheses or to interpret experimental data, to complex multi-layered models used to probe the predicted behavior of complex, highly non-linear systems. Models can be based on both experimental data and purely theoretical assumptions. Models can be simulated with a variety of deterministic and stochastic numerical solvers. VCell supports multiple biophysical mechanisms, including reaction kinetics, diffusion, flow, membrane transport, lateral membrane diffusion and electrophysiology.
