We would like to announce the availablity of a number of new tutorials,
tutorial packages, simulations, and other material at the GENESIS web site
genesis-sim.org.  These range from introductory simulator-independent
tutorials on compartmental cell modeling and realistic network simulation
in general, to advanced tutorials on the use of the GENESIS simulator, plus
various user-contributed "Mini-tutorials" on various aspects of neural
modeling.  These include many example simulations and exercises that have
been used in recent international neural modeling courses.  The material is
licensed under the GNU General Documentation License and may be modified or
incorporated into other courses, or used as a starting point for new

A new release of Parallel GENESIS (PGENESIS 2.2.1) is available for
download, with new tutorials on using Parallel GENESIS on PCs with
multicore processors, and on converting large network simulations to

The website now a contains a growing body of preliminary documentation for
GENESIS 3, which will be demonstrated at CNS 2009 in Berlin, with a public
alpha release to occur early in Fall 2009.  If you are going to CNS,
be sure to see the Sunday evening poster by Coop, et al., "Using GENESIS 3
for single neuron modeling".

A convenient GENESIS Project Search engine searches all sites involved in
the GENESIS project, and the searchable database of research publications
using GENESIS has been updated.
