VCell Scheduled Server Shutdown

2019-03-20T15:23:22+00:00 March 20th, 2019|News|

Due to a scheduled hardware upgrade, the servers hosting VCell will be going down at 8:00AM (ET) on Thursday March 21. Please be aware that Virtual Cell simulations running at that time will need to be restarted when the system comes back up. Therefore please avoid starting jobs that are likely to be still running at that time. We hope to restore full functionality by the end of the day.

18th Annual VCell Short Course

2017-12-01T20:49:22+00:00 June 15th, 2017|News|

VCell was pleased and honored to host its 18th annual VCell Short Course on June 12-14, 2017. Twelve national and international scientists traveled to work with VCell developers and administrators to construct Virtual Cell models based on their own, personal research interests. Thanks to all for a successful time!

New VCell Model from the Hille lab

VCell models were used to quantitatively analyze FRET measurements were used to demonstrate that voltage-sensing phosphatases (VSPs) have catalytic activity for PIP3 (Keum et al. 2016.  Phosphoinositide 5- and 3-phosphatase activities of a voltage-sensing phosphatase in living cells show identical voltage dependence. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 10.1073/pnas.1606472113, PMID 27222577).  Find the public VCell model here.

2016-02-02  SpringSaLad (Springs, Sites, and Langevin Dynamics) is a new software that uses a course-grained approach to model biomolecules as a group of linked spherical sites with excluded volumes.  The software user material is available here.  Read about the method and software in  Springsalad: A spatial, particle-based biochemical simulation platform with excluded volume. Michalski, P.J., and L.M. Loew. 2016 Biophys J. 110:523-529. PMID 26840718.
