ya||a is yet another parallel agent-based model for morphogenesis. It is several orders
of magnitude faster than conventional models, because it runs on GPUs and because
it has been designed for performance: Previously only complex and therefore computationally
expensive models could simulate both mesenchyme and epithelium. We chose to extend
the simple spheroid model by the addition of spin-like polarities to simulate epithelial
sheets and tissue polarity. We also incorporate recently developed models for protrusions
and migration. ya||a is written in concise, plain CUDA/C++ and available at github.com/germannp/yalla
