19th Annual VCell Short Course

2018-09-18T20:14:42+00:00 June 18th, 2018|News, VCell Posts|

2018-6-18  VCell hosted  its 19th annual VCell Short Course on June 12-14, 2018. Ten scientists traveled to work with the VCell team to construct Virtual Cell models based on their own research interests. It was exciting to see the breadth of cell biological problems to which VCell models were applied.  Thanks to all for a successful time!

VCell 7.0 with kinematics released

2018-06-18T15:04:12+00:00 March 15th, 2018|News, VCell Posts|

2018-3-15  Announcing the release of VCell 7.0.  VCell 7 includes new 2D kinematics functionality for solving reaction diffusion equations within moving boundaries.  To support models of cell motility and morphogenesis, this allows users to specify velocities of points, surfaces and volumes within the geometry.  Other features in VCell 7.0 are methods for creating simulated fluorescence for direct comparison to microscopy data, the ability to use COMSOL Multiphysics solver (requires a local COMSOL license) and adaptive meshes for simulating […]

New publication assesses FRAP analysis methods using VCell VirtualFrap tool.

2018-10-23T13:47:18+00:00 March 13th, 2018|News, NRCAM publication|

2018-03-13. A paper by Kinglsey et al assesses the effects of complex geometries on FRAP recovery curves. They develop a computational model of the FRAP processes to assess methods of analyzing FRAP experiments. They determined that the Vcell VirtualFRAP tool provides the best accuracy to measure diffusion coefficients. A link to the paper can be found on our published models page.
