We are excited to announce the release of StochSS: Stochastic Simulation Service, Version 1.1. StochSS is an integrated development environment featuring state of the art algorithms for discrete stochastic biochemical simulation. StochSS is designed to enable you to easily scale up your simulations in complexity, deploying compute resources as needed. The current version includes algorithms for simulation of well-mixed systems. Problems can be specified via a graphical user interface (or imported as StochKit2 models).

New capabilities of Version 1.1 include: simulation of ODE models, tools for converting ODE models into stochastic models, support for Windows systems, and enhanced management of cloud computing resources.

  • DASSL and DASPK2.0 are available in the public domain.
  • DASPK3.1 is subject to copyright restrictions, but is available for research purposes. It may still be subject to revision. This latest version of DASPK3.1 includes the root-finding DAE solver DASKR (root-finding modifications to DASPK3 done by Alan Hindmarsh, LLNL). DASPKAdjoint, which uses the adjoint method for computing the sensitivity coefficients, is also included.
