Abstrakt

We present a new open source software package CellSim3D for computer simulations of mechanical aspects (that is, biochemical details are not accounted for) of cell division
in three dimensions. It is also possible to use the software in the
mode with cell division and growth turned off which allows for
simulations of soft colloidal matter. The code is based on a previously
introduced two dimensional mechanical model for cell division which is
extended to full 3D. CellSim3D is written in C/C++ and CUDA and allows for simulations of 100,000 cells using standard desktop computers.
