Agent-based modeling of the whole cell has emerged as a frontier of modern research. To address this challenge, we developed MEDYAN, a mechano-chemical forcefield and simulation software, in C++. Our new Julia package is 10x faster. To achieve this result, the overall architecture was redesigned and various Julia packages were leveraged. I will describe our strategy for combining stochastic reaction diffusion dynamics with movable membrane and filament mechanics. See for more details.
