2020-11-30. Announcing the release of VCell 7.3! VCell 7.3 adds capabilities for multiple trajectories for non-spatial stochastic simulationss, interchange with the Open Modeling EXchange format (.omex), and automatic assignment of catalysts in the reaction diagram as well as numerous additional improvements and bug fixes.
2020-11-16. A new publication from the Lambert lab investigates the mechanisms that set the dynamic range of agonist-induced signaling using fluorescence imaging coupled with VCell modeling. Visit our published models page for links to the paper and to access the VCell model.
2020-10-20. A new publication from the Rangamani and Iyengar labs using VCell modeling to explore how cell shape affects calcium dynamics in vascular smooth muscle cells. Visit our published models page for links to the paper.
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.
2020-07-10. A new publication analyzes fluorescence photobleaching experiments using VCell numerical simulations to explore mechanisms of for differentiating somatodendritic and axonal compartments. Visit our published models page for links to the paper.
2019-12-10. VCell 7.2 has been released. See the Release Notes for a full list of the many new features in VCell 7.2 including new functionality to store identifiers and text annotations for model components, a service linking VCell simulation with ImageJ image analysis functions, rate rules and assignment rules in ODE applications, improved SBML import along with several other improvements.
