MATLAB software to aid researchers with technical computing
Matrix Laboratory (MATLAB) is a high-performance application for technical computing. It integrates computation, visualization, and programming in an easy-to-use environment where problems and solutions are expressed in familiar mathematical notation. Aside from mathematical analysis, MATLAB can also be used to build full-fledged applications that may have their own graphical user interface.
The tool has been used in a wide variety of research areas and other fields. From a biomedical research perspective, MATLAB has been used to build mathematical models of biological processes (to elucidate properties of dynamic systems such as cell cycle, apoptosis, chemotaxis, etc.) that can be deterministic or stochastic, continuous or discrete.
In addition, MATLAB can:
- solve these problems numerically (e.g., ordinary or partial differential equations);
- estimate or optimize parameters;
- fit simulations to experimental data;
- visualize data/simulations in 2D/3D;
- perform basic statistical analysis of data;
- generate publication-quality plots, even for data that has been generated by other software!

Sorry, not at this time, but we are working with the vendor to make this happen.
There is no limit.
Our license is annual and is valid from July 1 to June 30 of the following year, and your installed version of MATLAB will only function during that period. Each year you will be required to renew your license and redownload the latest version in order to continue using MATLAB. For more information, please see our MATLAB License Details.
Support is provided by the vendor (MathWorks). Please see the MATLAB Support page.
There are some important additional tools offered at www.mathworks.com (MATLAB vendor) to you at no cost. Here are few:
