VCell Archived Simulation Results temporarily unavailable

2020-09-16T16:03:40+00:00 September 15th, 2020|Alert, News|

Due to an unexpected failure, VCell model simulation results from 2019 and earlier cannot currently be accessed.  All other VCell  functions are unaffected, so saving new models and running simulations and storing results on our servers will function normally.  We expect the situation to be corrected within a few days, and all simulation results will once again be available from our archival storage.  Our apologies for any inconvenience.

2020 CompCellBio Workshop

2020-08-17T13:34:37+00:00 August 6th, 2020|News|

2020-08-05. The 2020 Computational Cell Biology Workshop was held as an online event Aug 3-5.  Find videos of the key presentations here.  Over 70 individuals participated overall; 16 individuals created models with VCell, COPASI and SpringSaLaD with help from CCAM team members in breakout rooms.  A screen shot of one the opening day presentations serves in place of our traditional group photo this year.
