Simulation of Early C. elegans EmbryogenesisPublic

Simulations are powerful tools that can be utilized to understand complex mechanisms within a system. Our project focuses on simulating the first several cell divisions of C. elegans embryogenesis. C. elegans is used as biological model for development, aging, and cell biology and is an ideal simulation candidate. Our four-dimensional simulation contains known information and hypotheses about molecular interactions within cells. Using rules to represent biological functions, our project visually and computationally shows the effects of several different mutations.
