2019-11-28. VCell was used to create a 2D spatial model of cAMP intracellular signaling in a new publication by Stone and colleagues.     Visit our published models page for links to the paper.

20th Annual VCell Short Course

2020-03-11T15:49:18+00:00 June 30th, 2019|News, VCell Posts|

2019-6-18  CCAM hosted a Computational Cell Biology Workshop on June 24-26, 2019, a combined workshop for both VCell and COPASI modeling software. Ten scientists from the US, Netherlands and Germany traveled to work with the VCell and COPASI teams to construct models based on their own research interests. It was exciting to see VCell and COPASI models applied to such interesting cell biology projects.  Thanks to all for a very successful course!

New model of GIV/girdin modulation of cyclic AMP signals

2020-08-17T13:46:57+00:00 June 13th, 2019|News|

2019-06-13. A new Molecular Biology of the Cell publication from the Rangamani lab uses VCell and COPASI to develop a model to examine cross-talk between receptor tyrosine kinases and G proteins that regulate cAMP levels.   Visit our published models page for links to the paper and to the VCell Biomodel.
