We are pleased to launch a new, improved version of WholeCell.org. The new version includes an introduction to the goals and motivations for whole-cell modeling, an overview of how researchers are approaching whole-cell modeling, links to whole-cell models and whole-cell modeling tools, and links to meetings, articles, and lectures about whole-cell modeling.
Jonathan Karr, Damjana Kastelic, Maria Lluch-Senar, and Luis Serrano received funding from EMBO for the third WC modeling school in April 2019. With EMBO support, the school will be expanded to 7 days.
The NIBIB has funded the new Center for Reproducible Biomedical Modeling to develop new methods and software tools for systematically and scalable building biomodels, including whole-cell models. The center is a joint effort among Herbert Sauro and John Gennari at the University of Washington; Jonathan Karr and Arthur Goldberg at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Ion Moraru, James Schaff, and Michael Blinov at the University of Connecticut; and David Nickerson at the University of Auckland.
