This is a curated collection of interactive, online cancer simulations and demos. It will be actively updated to include new and emerging cloud-hosted tools that demonstrate discrete and agent-based models in cancer biology and oncology.
This is a curated collection of interactive, online cancer simulations and demos. It will be actively updated to include new and emerging cloud-hosted tools that demonstrate discrete and agent-based models in cancer biology and oncology. If you spot an online simulator to include here, please contact Paul Macklin. See http://MathCancer.org/Contact.php.
The following are cloud-hosted, runnable cancer simulators. You can set parameters, run simulations remotely, and visualize the results in your browser.
microC: A 3D virtual microenvironment for perturbation biology
Author(s): Dimitrios Voukantsis, Kenneth Kahn, Martin Hadley, Rowan Wilson, Fracesca Buffa (lead)
Description: Online tool to simulate perturbations in a tumor-microenvironment system (with a gene network)
Method: Agent-based model (in NetLogo) with a signaling network.
The following are user-friendly, downloadable simualtion games and apps. You can explore cancer models and potential treatments. Please note that these may or may not be available on all platforms.
