The simulation and visualization of biological system models are becoming more and more important, in both clinical and research activities. Many tools help biologists and bioengineers to analyse and to study complex biological phenomena, such as disease spreading, tissue development and neurological reactivity. We present ongoing work on BioShape, a bio-inspired 3D simulation tool whose novelty consists of providing a 3D geometry-oriented modelling environment. Unlike most of the other tools, BioShape development aims to improve usability by taking advantage of End-User Development techniques.

Abstract

The simulation and visualization of biological system models are becoming more and more important, in both clinical and research activities. Many tools help biologists and bioengineers to analyse and to study complex biological phenomena, such as disease spreading, tissue development and neurological reactivity. We present ongoing work on BioShape, a bio-inspired 3D simulation tool whose novelty consists of providing a 3D geometry-oriented modelling environment. Unlike most of the other tools, BioShape development aims to improve usability by taking advantage of End-User Development techniques. While the user can easily understand the basic features of the tool, he is also made capable of extending them at different levels of complexity, for specic simulation purposes.
