BioDynaMo: Biological simulation in the cloud (CERN IT Technical Forum)

Friday, 1 December, 2017 - 10:00 to 12:00

We present BioDynaMo, a platform to simulate the growth and development of tissues starting from single cells. Addressing ambitious research questions, like modeling epilepsy, would require simulations with billions of cells on a large distributed cloud or HPC system. In this talk we explain the current parallelized simulation engine, our distributed computing approach and give an outlook on future research and development.
