  • Life scientists are faced with the tough challenge of developing high-performance computer simulations of their increasingly complex models. BioDynaMo is an open-source biological simulation platform that aims to alleviate them from the intricacies that go into development. Life scientists are able to base their models on top of BioDynaMo’s highly optimized core execution engine. At the core of all biological simulations is the mechanical interactions between possibly millions of objects. In… CONTINUE READING
