Morpheus is a modeling environment for the simulation and integration of cell-based models with ordinary differential equations and reaction-diffusion systems. It allows rapid development of multiscale models in biological terms and mathematical expressions rather than programming code. Its graphical user interface supports the entire workflow from model construction and simulation to visualization, archiving and batch processing.

GridABM is a set of open-source templates to simulate agent-based models (ABM) on multicore computers, computing clusters and computational grids. The software combines the agent-based modeling framework RePast with ProActive, a java-based solution for parallel, distributed, multi-core computing.
