Stochastic Ecological and Evolutionary Dynamics System

Project description

Created by:

Brian Connelly <> and Luis Zaman <>


Expanded Documentation:

The primary source for documentation is the SEEDS Wiki. Here, detailed installation instructions, how-to guides, code templates, and example experiments are provided.

Installing SEEDS:

SEEDS requires Python version 2.6.5 or greater. As of version 1.0.9, SEEDS also supports Python 3. Additionally, SEEDS requires the NetworkX package.

Installation is done using the standard Python Distribution Utilities and can be as straightforward as running “python install”. For further instructions on this process, please see the SEEDS Wiki or the official Distutils documentation at

Running SEEDS:

Out of the box, SEEDS includes simple experiments in the examples directory. These experiments can be run once SEEDS has been installed on your system. See the README.txt file in a specific directory to learn about the experiment, how to configure it, and how to perform it.

Expanding SEEDS:

SEEDS is designed as a plugin-based framework. This means that you can create and use your own cell types, topologies, and actions and use these immediately without modifying the base SEEDS framework.

To create experiments that model behaviors of interest to you, a Cell type will need to be created. Additionally, sample Cell types can be found in the examples directory, and a template can be found in the templates directory.

For further information abou plugins, please see the SEEDS Wiki.
