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)
