Reaction diffusion simulations are important tools for the modeling of signal transduction cascades in cellular processes. This seminar consists of lectures for the introduction to reaction-diffusion processes as well as "hands-on" computer exercises in which the particle-based reaction-diffusion simulator ReaDDy ( will be taught.

Reaktions-Diffusions Simulationen sind ein wichtiges Werkzeug zur Modellierung von Signaltransduktionskaskaden in zellulären Prozessen. Dieses Seminar beinhaltet Vorträge zur Einführung in die Modellierung und Simulation von Reaktions-Diffusions-Prozesses sowie eine "hands-on" Computereinführung in den partikelbasierte Reaktions-Diffusions Simulator ReaDDy (

Information for non-resident applicants

PhD students and PostDocs interested in ReaDDy are welcome to participate. To register, send an email to christoph.froehner[at] stating your affiliation and research focus.

How to find us

The workshop takes place at Freie Universität, Department of Mathematics and Informatics. The nearest bus stop is "Arnimallee" on the Bus X83 route (connecting U Dahlem with S + U Rathaus Steglitz)

For area map and directions see here.


Freie Universität does not operate on-campus guest houses or student dormitories. Therefore, participants from outside of Berlin must arrange their own accommodation. The best way to find accommodation and benefit from special deals is Districts well connected to campus are Steglitz-Zehlendorf, Tempelhof-Schöneberg, Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf as well as anything within the so called 'Ringbahn' loop. You can check travel times to our institute here, public transport journey planner.

Getting around

Berlin has an extensive public transit network (undergound, urban rail, buses, trams) with 3 tariff zones. Ticket AB (2.80€) will get you anywhere in Berlin including Tegel Airport (TXL). For Schönefeld Airport (SFX) you will need Ticket ABC (3.40€).
