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

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.

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!
