PhysiCell Tutorials

We have written a series of tutorials for new users to PhysiCell, an open source 3-D (and 2-D) agent-based biological simulation framework for C++ (Ghaffarizadeh et al., 2017, in review).  They are there to walk users through various aspects of PhysiCell, such as setting up g++ and writing a sample project.

Getting ready to use PhysiCell

  1. Setting up a 64-bit gcc environment in Windows.
  2. Setting up gcc / OpenMP on OSX (MacPorts edition)
    Note: We highly recommend using Homebrew instead. (See below).
  3. Setting up gcc / OpenMP on OSX (Homebrew edition)
    Note: This is the preferred method for Mac OSX.
  4. Getting started with a PhysiCell Virtual Appliance (for virtual machines like VirtualBox)
    Note: The “native” setups above are preferred, but the Virtual Appliance is a great “plan B” if you run into trouble

Common Problems and Solutions (especially for compiling PhysiCell projects)

Using PhysiCell

  1. Your first PhysiCell simulation (coming soon!)
  2. Building and running the standard PhysiCell sample projects
