ChemCell Thanks

ChemCell development has been funded by the US Department of Energy (DOE), through its LDRD program and through its Genomes-to-Life program via the ASCR and BER offices.

The original version of ChemCell was part of the GTL project "Carbon Sequestration in Synechococcus Sp.: From Molecular Machines to Hierarchical Modeling".

The authors of ChemCell are Steve Plimpton and Alex Slepoy, who can be contacted at sjplimp at and alexander.sleopy at

We wish to thank several individuals who helped us with specific ideas and features in ChemCell:

Larry Lok and Roger Brent (TMSI) useful design discussions
Steve Andrews (LBNL, now TMSI) Smoldyn and reaction kinetics discussions
Dan Gillespie algorithm discussions
Ray Meyers and collaborators (Elemental Technologies) particle-triangle routines
Karen Devine and Eric Boman (Sandia) Zoltan load-balancing library

Here are links to TMSI, Smoldyn, and Zoltan.
