Welcome to CompuCell3D
CompuCell3D is an open-source simulation environment for multi-cell, single-cell-based modeling of tissues, organs and organisms.
It uses Cellular Potts Model to model cell behavior.
This project is funded by the NIH and EPA.
Compucell3D is led by Maciej Swat (IU), James Glazier(IU) and Roshan D'Souza (U.Wisc. Milwaukee)
Want to contribute to CompuCell3D developement?
We highly encourage fellow researchers to contribute to CompuCell3D code. If you have developed some useful plugin or fuctionality on CompuCell3D and would like share it with rest of us. Please commit the code and open a pull request on CompuCell3D GitHub repository. We would love to see it in next version of CompuCell3D.
