Cells are tightly packed with structures and molecules that carry out the day-to-day operations of living. Understanding how cellular design dictates function is essential to understanding life and disease, in the brain, heart, or elsewhere. MCell (Monte Carlo cell) is a program that uses spatially realistic 3-D cellular models and specialized Monte Carlo algorithms to simulate the movements and reactions of molecules within and between cells - cellular microphysiology.

MCell is installed on salk.
