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 Reference Model for Disease Progression uses MIST as its engine
MIST distribution includes tests that are made public that test its integrity and validity. This includes critical tests, statistical tests, and reproducibility tests.
The test examples are documented and documentation is released with the software.
The Reference Model uses MIST for 7 years as its engine and MIST was used to model mental health model and Sepsis.
