Biomolecular Programming

Students from the first year BSc. Nanobiology program need to design a simulation of a biological process in their final assignment for the course BioMolecular Programming.

In 8 weeks they learn the basics skills to understand how to write a computer program in Java and use these skills to set up a simulation in a graphical interface. Every year a new biological process is chosen to be simulated by the students in their final assignment. It is possible to simulate a real event with surprisingly few amount of conditions and rules. Nevertheless these rules, conditions and tests need to be combined successfully in an algorithm by the students themselves.

This creates many beautiful simulations and some of them are even better with creative or realistic extra components added to the code. Therefore we would like to show you the best programs from the past years.
