Sibernetic Worm body simulator
Worms are soft and squishy.So our model has to be too.
We are building in the physics of muscles, soft tissues and fluids.Because it matters.

We created a 3D Browser to let everybody take the worm apart.Zoom, rotate and peel back layers of a 3D worm without getting your hands dirty.

Every neuron the worm has, and how they connect.Everything in its right place.Now we are bringing it to life.

A modular simulation engine.
We are engineering Geppetto, a plug-and-play platform to power simulations of biological systems... from your web browser.
Aiming for the best.
We are using optimization techniques such as genetic algorithms to fine-tune our models to fit experimental data from real cellular recordings.
It's evolution, baby.
Enter the worm.
OpenWorm is an open source project dedicated to creating a virtual C. elegans nematode in a computer.
