8. Advanced Models


Some of these tutorials have not yet been updated for CellBlender 1.1. Therefore, some things might not work exactly as described.

What follows is a series of advanced MCell and CellBlender models each of which serves a unique purpose. Some examples (e.g. Fick’s 1st and 2nd Laws) teach fundamentals which are critical for understanding both the physical and chemical laws upon which MCell’s algorithms are based. Other examples (e.g. Rat Neuromuscular Junction) show models which either have been used as actual research projects or could form the basis of such projects.


It is assumed that you have already gone through tutorials 1-5 prior to attempting these.
