simulations of chemical reactions

Cain performs stochastic and deterministic simulations of chemical reactions. It can spawn multiple simulation processes to utilize multi-core computers. It stores models, methods, and simulation output (populations and reaction counts) in an XML format. In addition, SBML models can be imported and exported. The models and methods can be read from input files or edited within the program.

The GUI (Graphical User Interface) is written in Python and uses the wxPython toolkit. Most of the solvers are implemented as command line executables, written in C++, which are driven by Cain. This makes it easy to launch batch jobs. It also simplifies the process of adding new solvers. Cain offers a variety of solvers: * Gillespie's direct method. * Gillespie's first reaction method. * Gibson and Bruck's next reaction method. * Tau-leaping. * Hybrid direct/tau-leaping. * ODE integration.

This package provides the cain examples

Package version:1.9-4


These are the Cain equivalents of some of the SBML files in the 
"Discrete Stochastic Model Test Suite."

The Discrete Stochastic Model Test Suite consists of a series of SBML
models together with brief descriptions of each one, and time-course
data which may be used to test the output from discrete stochastic
