Brevis is an open-source scientific and artificial life simulator that uses the functional language, [Clojure](, for writing simulations. # News July 14, 2015 - Brevis has teamed up with the Waltham High School-Brandeis University summer science program run by Vivekanand Vimal to help in the programming component. In a series of courses taught by Francesco Pontiggia, we're introducing students to Python programming (yes, you heard that right, we're testing a Python interface for Brevis). For more info on the WHS-Brandeis program see this [Brandeis news article]( June 21, 2015 - Recently we've been cleaning up Brevis, and are gearing up for some educational applications. Most of the recent improvements have been speedups, graphics, and cluster usage. Nov 22, 2014 - Let's see whats new... - Quite a few plotting improvements - Rendering speed optimizations - Tweak to how collision handling works (for the better) - Simple evolutionary algorithm code - More distributed computing support - Parameter management Oct 5, 2014 - Working LSF cluster support, visual overlays for graphics. Aug 28, 2014 - We're still on the 0.9.X releases. There have been some significant speed boosts, as well as minor visual and input improvements. June 20, 2014 - We've begun migrating the site to the new domain. Brevis development is now based out of the Computational Biology Lab, Center for Vascular Biology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School. Catching up on some older news, there have been 2 recent Brevis based academic publications: Gold, J., A. Wang, and K. Harrington, (2014) "Feedback Control of Evolving Swarms". In Proceedings of Artificial Life XIV, pp. 884-891. Lowell, J., K. Harrington, and J. Pollack, (2014) "The Resilience of a Swarm Ecosystem Under Environmental Variation". In Proceedings of Artificial Life XIV, pp. 827-834. # Dashboard For your Brevis project's project.clj: [![Clojars Project](]( Build status: [Build Status]( Brevis developers are affiliated with: [Center for Vascular Biology Reserach, BIDMC]( [DEMO lab](
