Chaste - Cancer Heart And Soft Tissue Environment
Chaste is a computational biology simulation package. It provides a cardiac simulation package which provides a way to use CellML electrophysiology models in tissue simulations. The cardiac code is suitable for high performance computing on large supercomputers.
The cell-based side of the code provides a variety of agent-based models (cellular automata, cell-centre-based (on and off mesh), cell vertex, cellular Potts models) for use in biological settings where cells divide and die according to other models.
