This software is no longer maintained, our development efforts have moved to the tyssue library.

This is the Drosophilia Leg Joint Simulation - or in short just leg-joint

- Python >= 3.3 (might work with minimal effort on 2.7, but it's untested)
- numpy >= 1.8
- scipy >= 0.12
- pandas >= 0.13
- matplotlib >= 1.3
- IPython >= 1.0
- graph_tool >= 2.2.36 warning Due to a bug in version 2.2.35, this version won't work
The easiest route to install (nearly) all the dependencies is to use
graph-tool follow the link above and the instructions there. The
easiest way is to install from the precompiled packaged binaries, if
available for your OS. Due to a bug, version 2.2.35 won't work.
The best way to approach the simulations work-flow is to have a look (and eventually execute) at the notebooks. You can browse static views of those here: http://nbviewer.ipython.org/github/glyg/leg-joint/tree/master/notebooks/
