Welcome to CompuCell3D
CompuCell3D is an open-source simulation environment for multi-cell, single-cell-based modeling of tissues, organs and organisms.
It uses Cellular Potts Model to model cell behavior.
This project is funded by the NIH and EPA.
Compucell3D is led by Maciej Swat (IU), James Glazier(IU) and Roshan D'Souza (U.Wisc. Milwaukee)

****************** Job Opportunity ******************
We are currently looking for modelers (experience in building multi-cell models is desired) to build computational models of somite formation, liver toxicity and polycystic kidney disease. We are interested in both postdoctoral level candidates as well as PhD students. For more information please email James Glazier (email@example.com) or Maciej Swat (firstname.lastname@example.org). The preferred starting date would be January 2015.
