Neet: Simulating and analyzing network models

Neet is a python package designed to provide an easy-to-use API for creating and evaluating network models. In its current state, Neet supports simulating synchronous Boolean network models, though the API is designed to be model generic. Future work will implement asynchronous update mechanisms and more general network types.

If you are interested in using Neet, you'll definitely be interested in checking out the documentation -

$ pip install --user neet

From Source

$ git clone
$ cd neet
$ python test
$ pip install .
