Cell Oriented Modeling Biological Development using the Cellular Potts Model

Last modified: May 15, 2006
The Cellular Potts Model has proved itself to be a simple and flexible framework for creating cell-oriented models of development. I will introduce the CPM and its applications to developmental biology simulations. I will illustrate applications of the CPM to modeling Dictyostelium discoideum, limb development, tumor growth, somitogenesis, gastrulation, angiogenesis and vasculogenesis in vitro.
