Finding simulation tools

Finding a simulation tool that is capable of executing a modeling project

The simulation tools in the BioSimulators collection support different model formats, modeling frameworks, simulation types, simulation algorithms, and observables. To find a simulation tool, use the following steps:

  1. Determine the format and framework of your model, and identify the simulation type and algorithm that you would like to execute.
  2. Browse the simulators to identify a tool which can execute your project.

Alternatively, runBioSimulations provides a utility to recommend a simulation tool for specific combinations of model formats, modeling frameworks, simulation types, and simulation algorithms.

Programmatically retrieving information about simulation tools via the REST API

An API is available for retrieving information about the simulation tools in the BioSimulators collection. Please see the documentation for the REST API for more information.

An interactive tutorial for using the API is available from Binder.
