Python-based toolkits for STEPS (Chen and De Schutter 2014)

We provide two examples to demonstrate the use of the geometry preparation toolkit and the visualization tool for STEPS, described in Chen W and De Schutter E (2014). The package contains two folders, each for an individual example. The ip3r folder contains mesh data and simulation scripts for the IP3 receptor model described in the paper, and the AD folder contains data and scripts for Anomalous Diffusion simulation. Please read the instruction.pdf file within the package for detail instructions.

Model Type: Dendrite

Receptors: IP3

Simulation Environment: STEPS (web link to model)

Implementer(s): Chen, Weiliang [w.chen at]
