StochSS is an integrated development environment (IDE) for discrete stochastic biochemical simulations. Users make use of a graphical user interface (GUI) to define their problem, including its domain (geometry, volume), molecular interactions (stoichiometry, rate constants), and simulation goals (single trajectory, histogram, probabilities of rare events). The platform transparently executes model workflows using local resources (laptops, workstations) and public, private or hybrid clouds.
This project is a collaboration with Linda Petzold (UCSB), Brian Drawer (UNCA) and Michael Hucka (Caltech).
