The ShAPE-DALSP software package provides numerical methods for the simulation of division-, age- and label-structured Population models. Furthermore, it facilitates the inference of model parameters from CFSE time-series data. Its key features are

For the parameter estimation we exploit the Parameter EStimation Toolbox (PESTO) developed in the Institute of Computational Biology of the Helmholtz Zentrum München.


ShAPE-DALSP is a software package for MATLAB. To exploit its functionality the Optimization Toolbox and the Symbolic Math Toolbox are required. For high-performance computing, the Parallel Computing Toolbox and Distributed Computing Server is required.
