The MIcro Simulation Tool is free software to support disease modeling. It is a Monte-Carlo micro-simulation compiler that employs High Performance Computing. MIST has unique population generation capabilities. MIST runs over the cloud!

The MIcro Simulation Tool is free software that allows the user to :
* Define state transition models with multiple processes
* Generate populations to match given statistics using Evolutionary Computation
* Run Simulations in High Performance Computing environment - including the cloud
* Analyze and Report the results

Below are some videos that describe MIST capabilities:

The Reference Model is one examples of use of MIST. It can be found in the following link:

MIST version is released to the public. It has limited capabilities. For later versions with enhanced capabilities, please contact the developer.


The MIST software is hosted on GitHub, and includes examples of use, documentation, and a test suite. This project links to those resources.
