VCell 7.2 – Environment for Modeling & Simulation of Cell Biology

VCell 7.2

:: DESCRIPTION

VCell (Virtual Cell) is a unique computational environment for modeling and simulation of cell biology . It has been specifically designed to be a tool for a wide range of scientists, from experimental cell biologists to theoretical biophysicists. The creation of biological or mathematical models can range from the simple, to evaluate hypotheses or to interpret experimental data, to complex multi-layered models used to probe the predicted behavior of complex, highly non-linear systems. Such models can be based on both experimental data and purely theoretical assumptions.

YASARA 19.12.14 – Molecular Graphics, Modeling & Simulation program

YASARA 19.12.14

:: DESCRIPTION

YASARA (Yet Another Scientific Artificial Reality Application)is a molecular-graphics, -modeling and -simulation program.With an intuitive user interface, photorealistic graphics and support for affordable shutter glasses, autostereoscopic displays and input devices, YASARA creates a new level of interaction with the ‘artificial reality’, that allows you to focus on your goal and forget about the details of the program.

YASARA View is available for free and contains the basic functions you need to explore a macromolecular structure interactively, comparable to other molecule viewers.

YASARA Model contains YASARA View and adds all the functions you need to explore, analyze and model small and macromolecules in a production environment. This includes many features you often miss: unlimited undo/redo, macro recorder, quad-buffered stereo with shutter glasses or the DTI virtual window .

YASARA Dynamics contains YASARA Model and adds support for molecular simulations.

YASARA Structure contains YASARA Dynamics and adds all the functions needed to predict and validate macromolecular structures, including ligand docking and highly accurate force fields with knowledge-based potentials, and an optional module for NMR structure determination.

Circadian Modelling 2.0 – Simulations using Mathematical Models of Biological Clocks

Circadian Modelling 2.0

:: DESCRIPTION

Circadian Modelling is a flexible, user-friendly software interface for running simulations. It is aimed primarily at experimental biologists who wish to use modelling to rapidly simulate their own chosen phenotypes and experimental protocols.  Modules allow the simulation of experimental protocols with just a few mouse clicks. Users can fine-tune simulations to suit their particular interests.
