What is CellMC?

CellMC is an open source program generator that compiles a mesoscopic model of a biochemical reaction network, expressed as SBML, into an executable program that realizes SSA for that model; the program can then be run for any final simulation time and number of realizations.

At the time of writing, CellMC was the fastest freely available SSA software on the PC platform by an order of magnitude.

CellMC runs on Intel Pentium 4 (or AMD equivalent) or later computers running Linux, Windows (under Cygwin) or Mac OS X, and on Cell/BE computers running Linux including the Sony PlayStation 3 and IBM QS22.
