Cell simulation realizes theoretical experiments in silico to enhance our understanding of dynamic cellular activities through integrative systems biology approaches. E-Cell 3D introduces a whole new dimension for the understanding of dynamic behaviors of complex cellular systems, with dazzling visualization using cutting-edge 3D graphics. This visualization approach allows the user to capture the entire system at a glance, and aids the heuristics of system biologists in the process of modeling.
Seeing is Believing.
Graphs are simply not scalable and too intricate for human interpretations as a means for interpreting simulation results, when there is a large number of components. Intuitive visualization aids the understanding of highly complex systems.
