What is E-Cell project?

The E-Cell Project develops general technologies and theoretical supports for computational biology with the grand aim to make precise whole cell simulation at the molecular level possible.

Some of the research foci of the Project include:

  • Modeling methodologies, formalisms and techniques, including technologies to predict, obtain or estimate parameters such as reaction rates and concentrations of molecules in the cell.
  • E-Cell System, a software platform for modeling, simulation and analysis of complex, heterogeneous and multi-scale systems like the cell.
  • Numerical simulation algorithms.
  • Mathematical analysis methods.

The E-Cell Project is open to anyone who shares the view with us that development of cell simulation technology, and, even if such ultimate goal might not be within ten years of reach yet, solving various conceptual, computational and experimental problems that will continue to arise in the course of pursuing it, may have a multitude of eminent scientific, medical and engineering impacts on our society.
