Computational Models

Netflux: user-friendly software for logic-based modeling of biological networks

Windows version 1.0 installer: [Netflux_1p0_Windows.exe]
Mac version 1.0 installer: []
Note: during installation, the Windows and Mac versions will automatically download and install a ~250 MB MATLAB runtime. If you already have MATLAB, we recommend using the sourcecode version as the runtime is not needed.
