 $ git clone https://github.com/AllenInstitute/bmtk.git
 $ cd bmtk
 $ python setup.py install

There are examples of building models and running simulations located in docs/examples/. Some of the simulation engines may require additonal requirements to run.

Tests

There are a collection of unit-tests in bmtk.tests which can be run using pytest

  $ cd bmtk
  $ py.test
