Exact stochastic simulation of intracellular transport

Exact stochastic simulation of intracellular transport

A C++ implementation of the hybrid continuous-discrete stochastic simulation algorithm for intracellular transport can be downloaded here. The code was written by Jo Helmuth as part of his PhD project at the MOSAIC Group:

J. A. Helmuth. Computational Methods for Analyzing and Simulating Intra-Cellular Transport Processes. PhD thesis, Diss. ETH No. 19190, ETH Zürich, 2010. (PDF)


The method and algorithm implemented in this toolbox are described and benchmarked in the following publication:
