DEDiscover is workflow-based differential equation modeling software for
scientists, statisticians and modelers. It was developed at the Center
for Biodefense Immune Modeling (CBIM) of the
University of Rochester with grants from the
NIH and the
Although DEDiscover was designed to assist in research in Immunology, it is a general purpose tool to perform simulation, parameter estimation and statistical analysis for any problem that can be expressed as a set of differential equations. It allows researcher to define the equations in a syntax which resembles what ones expects to find in a textbook or a research paper.
DEDiscover is written in C++ and Java. Earlier versions required to have the R statistical package
installed in order to perform the two-step estimation. However this is no longer necessary for
version 2.10 or later. DEDiscover can be
freely and there are Mac and Windows versions available. Linux versions are available on request.
