A MATLAB® toolbox that given a three-dimensional spine reconstruction computes a set of characteristic morphological measures that unequivocally determine the spine shape.
This software is developed in a jupyter notebook inside Collaboratory v1 of the HBP. It allows a user to configure and test, through an intuitive GUI, different synaptic plasticity models and protocols on any of the single cell optimized models present in the model catalog.
It consists of two tabs: "Config", where the user can specify the plasticity model to use and synaptic parameters such as location, initial weight, activation pattern, additional somatic current injections, or voltage clamp parameter, and "Sim", where the user can define the recording location, weight's evolution, and also the number of simulations to run (to obtain average results). The results are plotted at the end of the simulation and the traces can be downloaded for further analysis.

Arbor is a high-performance library for computational neuroscience simulations with multi-compartment, morphologically-detailed cells, from single cell models to very large networks. Arbor is written from the ground up with many-cpu and gpu architectures in mind, to help neuroscientists effectively use contemporary and future HPC systems to meet their simulation needs. Arbor supports NVIDIA and AMD GPUs as well as explicit vectorization on CPUs from Intel (AVX, AVX2 and AVX512) and ARM (Neon and SVE). When coupled with low memory overheads, this makes Arbor an order of magnitude faster than the most widely-used comparable simulation software. Arbor is open source and openly developed, and we use development practices such as unit testing, continuous integration, and validation.
BioExcel Building Blocks Workflows is a collection of biomolecular workflows to explore the flexibility and dynamics of macromolecules, including signal transduction proteins or molecules related to the Central Nervous System. Molecular dynamics setup for protein and protein-ligand complexes are examples of workflows available as Jupyter Notebooks. The workflows are built using the BioBB software library, developed in the framework of the BioExcel Centre of Excellence. BioBBis a collection of Python wrappers on top of popular biomolecular simulation tools, offering a layer of interoperability between the wrapped tools, which make them compatible and prepared to be directly interconnected to build complex biomolecular workflows.
