Software Development

DReAMM (Design, Render, and Animate MCell Models) is a program used to visualize, edit, and annotate models for spatially realistic microphysiological simulations. It is specially tailored to MCell models and simulation results, but also can be used to import, visualize, and edit meshes from 3-D reconstruction and computer-aided-design software.  The resulting edited and annotated mesh objects subsequently can be exported for MCell simulations and other uses. The current development version (4.x) utilizes optimizations included in PSC_DX, and supports rapid manipulation and customization of mesh and molecule objects numbering in the thousands. Such features are essential to research applications focused on increasingly complex and realistic 3-D cellular models.
