Challenges in Reproducibility, Replicability, and Comparability of Computational Models and Tools for Neuronal and Glial Networks, Cells, and Subcellular Structures

Front Neuroinform
PMCID: 5938413
PMID: 29765315
DOI: 10.3389/fninf.2018.00020

[…] implementation of the model and data-analysis method in a public and widely adopted simulation tool or programming language (e.g., Python) in some of the available model repositories, for example in ModelDB and BioModels database (Le Novère et al., ), is a must. Regardless of all the available formats and tools, many authors do not publish their models in a format that is easily exchangeable betw […]
