The stochastic evolution of a protocell: the Gillespie algorithm in a dynamically varying volume

The stochastic evolution of a protocell: the Gillespie algorithm in a dynamically varying volume

Computational and Mathematical Methods in Medicine 2012: 423627

We propose an improvement of the Gillespie algorithm allowing us to study the time evolution of an ensemble of chemical reactions occurring in a varying volume, whose growth is directly related to the amount of some specific molecules, belonging to the reactions set. This allows us to study the stochastic evolution of a protocell, whose volume increases because of the production of container molecules. Several protocell models are considered and compared with the deterministic models.
