2024-04-10. Michael Blinov and Ion Moraru presented VCell tutorial at HARMONY 2024 at University College London. Other topics discussed include interoperability of multiple standards like SBML, SED-ML and COMBINE archive supported by VCell.

25th Annual Comp Cell Bio workshop

2024-03-11T17:25:54+00:00 February 29th, 2024|CCAM Events, News|

VCell, COPASI and SpringSalad were taught and used for projects at the  25th Annual Computational Cell Biology (CCB) workshop that took place online February 26-28th.  The invited talks were given by Yulia Timofeeva (University of Warwick), James P Sluka (Indiana University) and Kevin Janes (University of Virginia). Sixteen participants were selected to work with VCell and COPASI instructors on their projects, and eight gave presentations on their projects at the Modeling Symposium.

A model of K+ and pH homeostasis in plant cells.

2024-02-12. Ingo Dreyer (U Talca, Chile) and Kai Konrad (U Wuerzburg, Germany) used VCell to design and simulate a model explaining the properties of transporter networks and the coupling of transport across the PM and VM. They demonstrated fundamental principles of coupled ion transport at membrane sandwiches to control H+ /K+ homeostasis and points to transceptor-like Ca2+ /H+ -based ion signaling in plant cells.

VCell was highlighted at the 22nd International Conference on Systems Biology (ICSB) that took place in Hartford October 8-12, 2023. The meeting was organized by CCAM faculty and co-chaired by Pedro Mendes and Ion Moraru. VCell team presented two tutorials (basic modeling by Ann Cowan and advanced features by Michael Blinov) and a poster.

A model of the cadherin-11 and PDGFR pathways crosstalk

2023-11-11T19:34:58+00:00 September 22nd, 2023|News|

2023-09-22. VCell collaborator Aurélie Carlier from Maastricht University published a manuscript where a computational model in VCell was used to represent the experimentally proven interactions between cadherin-11 and the two PDGFRs. The authors demonstrated the existence of a crosstalk between β-catenin (downstream to cadherin-11) and an ERK inhibitor protein (e.g. DUSP1).
