iDynoMiCS Release 1.3 (June 2015)

We are proud to release the latest update to iDynoMiCS - which includes additional simulation functionality and enhanced methods of analysis & visualisation. The tool can be downloaded in two different ways. Should you wish to use the tool to perform experimentation, then download the Latest Stable release using the button below. If however you wish to contribute to the future development of the tool (which we encourage), you can download the most up to date version of the source code from our Github repository using the Github button below. Full documentation that details how to contribute to iDynoMiCS development using this repository is available on the iDynoMiCS wiki, also located in the Github repository.

We strongly encourage users to upgrade their Java version to 1.8

Changes Introduced in Version 1.3

Aging Bacteria

Agent classes that "age" (AgingBac, etc), as described in this paper.

Runnable Jar File

A runnable jar version of iDynoMiCS: just double click on iDynoMiCS_v1_3.jar to launch a simulation. It may be convenient to make a shortcut to this on your desktop. The console output can now be diverted to a pop-up window by ticking a box on the file chooser window. Thanks to Bastiaan Cockx (DTU Copenhagen) for this improvement.

Python Analysis Tools

New simulation analysis tools in Python 2, including a number of plotting scripts that use the package Matplotlib. Windows users are encouraged to install WinPython, as this includes the necessary packages. Please remember to install Python 2, not Python 3.
