Smile Modeling a Cell--how to do this?



I am a programmer and I wish to model a cell. I don't have a clue where to start. Any open source pointers? Thank you. OC

If you are feeling innovative, use the visualizations of media players.

Another productive avenue is the virtual drosophila labs approach.

Have a look at [Only registered users see links. ]

This one is hilarious because when you order your flies on the computer and they are delivered immediately... Important lesson there for every life scientist

OK, though I could not connect to the link you provided. For all the billions we taxpayers spend on the NIH, don't they have some open source?

Model the cell - to what application? There's no way a model can consider all the variables involved - tho' some might be simplistic enough for technically trivial applications

Thanks Jorge. Well what you say is true for physics too (Google for example the "Three Body Problem"), which has been modeled pretty well. You can always model a complex system, such as the earth regarding global warming. Whether your model represents reality is another matter.

If you can remember this thread, since you're likely to intern somewhere where they do model cells, please repost at some point if you come across an open source model of a cell. This is a long term project of mine and I'll check here from time to time. I suspect any cell model is probably proprietary and resides on some secure server at some big pharma company, but in theory I suppose anything the government does should be accessible to the public.
