Virtual Leaf is an open-source, cell-based computer-modeling framework for plant tissue morphogenesis.
Virtual Leaf allows you to define a set of biologically-intuitive C++ objects, including cells, cell walls, and diffusing and reacting chemicals, that provide useful abstractions for building biological simulations of developmental processes.
Virtual Leaf models gives plant researchers the ability to analyze the function of developmental genes in the context of the biophysics of growth and patterning.
Detailed instructions on how to install and use the Virtual Leaf utility on your Mac are available Virtual Leaf.
Virtual Leaf is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. Binaries for the Windows and Linux platforms are available on the project's homepage.
