Drs Ion Moraru and Michael Blinov along with computer specialists Gnaneswara Marupilla and Michael Wilson are co-authors on a new paper in Nuclei Acids Research describing the new resources available through RunBioSimulations, a product of the NIH-funded National Biomedical Technology Resource lead by Ion Moraru of the University of Connecticut School of Medicine and Herbert Sauro at Washington University.

Cowan and Loew publication

5-13-21. Drs. Ann Cowan and Les Loew are co-authors on a new paper in PLoS Computational Biology, “Ten steps to investigate a cellular system with mathematical modeling” that teaches how to use mathematical modeling with VCell software to explore cellular systems.

2021 Computational Biology Workshop

6-24-2021. CCAM hosted the 2021 Computational Cell Biology workshop JUnew 21-23, providing instruction to over 50 individuals from around the world on mathematical modeling techniques using VCell, COPASI and SpringSaLaD software.  Fifteen of the participants worked closely with CCAM researchers to develop their own models related to their research projects.  Another successful year for the modeling workshop!
