Dizzy is a chemical kinetics stochastic simulation software package written in Java. It provides a model definition environment and an implementation of the Gillespie, Gibson-Bruck, and Tau-Leap stochastic algorithms. Dizzy is capable of importing and exporting the SBML model definition language, as well as displaying models graphically using the Cytoscape software system. Dizzy was written by Stephen Ramsey (who is now at Oregon State University) while working in the laboratory of Hamid Bolouri at ISB. Dizzy is based on the ISBJava library. The software is available for download in a self-contained archive format. It is distributed under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL), which is a standard "free software" and "open source" license. Dizzy requires the Java 2 Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.4 or newer, or an equivalent JRE. For more information about the Dizzy system, please consult the Dizzy User Manual.

Current version: 1.11.4, released on 2006/09/28

The development of Dizzy was supported by a grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID), a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
