Virtual model environment

Kidney posts Jun 12, 2015 Modelling Whole-kidney

Thanks to Daniel Hurley from the University of Melbourne Systems Biology Laboratory, the whole-kidney model that I produced with S. Randall Thomas is now available as a virtual environment that is straightforward to install and get running.

  1. Ensure that Git, Vagrant and VirtualBox are installed; then
  2. Run the following commands in a terminal:
git clone https://github.com/uomsystemsbiology/rgm_kidney_vagrant.git
cd rgm_kidney_vagrant
vagrant up

This will open a virtual machine that includes the pre-compiled model executable, allowing you to run model simulations and reproduce any of our manuscript figures by double-clicking on a desktop icon!
