dyngen is a novel, multi-modal simulation engine for studying dynamic cellular processes at single-cell resolution. dyngen is more flexible than current single-cell simulation engines, and allows better method development and benchmarking, thereby stimulating development and testing of novel computational methods.

dyngen is now published (CC-BY, doi:10.1038/s41467-021-24152-2). Run citation("dyngen") to obtain the corresponding citation information. All source code for reproducing the results in this manuscript are available on GitHub.


dyngen should work straight out of the CRAN box by running install.packages("dyngen"). Having said that, you should definitely configure a few system variables for optimal speed. Check the installation guide for more information!
