VCell Software

The Virtual Cell is a software modeling environment for quantitative cell biological research. Users can create simple or complex multi-layered models with a Java web-based interface. Distinct biological and mathematical frameworks exist within a single graphical interface designed for experimental cell biologists or theoretical biophysicists. New users are required to register when they first run the Virtual Cell Software.

The Virtual Cell, a project of NRCAM, is developed by the Center for Cell Analysis & Modeling (CCAM)
