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.
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!
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.
