Use the sub-menu to navigate
through the various categories. Here, you can find (links
to) software to analyse your data, or for simulations. Can't
find what you're looking for? Check out the website on Ecotoxicology and
Models. The DEBtoxM and BYOM packages for Matlab are
maintained by Tjalling
Jager (DEBtox Research). If you find these packages
useful, please consider paying for my e-books.
That way, I can continue to allocate time to updating the
packages. The 'other software' includes a short explanation
and links to the GUTS R-package, the NETlogo DEB-IBM
package, and DEBtool.
What if I have questions about the software?
Use e-mail to contact me with your questions. I
will personally make sure that your questions regarding the
DEBtoxM and BYOM implementations will be addressed (as I
developed the Matlab code). For the other software, I cannot
provide support, but I can draw the developer's attention to
your question. None of this software is developed by
professional software engineers, so be prepared to do some
work, and don't expect a help desk (but it's totally free,
so don't complain).
What happened to the DEBtox Windows software?
That software is no longer offered
or maintained. The underlying equations for sub-lethal
endpoints contained a few errors (see Jager
& Zimmer, 2012 for a corrected set of equations),
and it was programmed in such a way that it is almost
impossible to update. The Matlab implementations as part of
DEBtoxM and BYOM that you can find on this site are much
more flexible, but of course, much less user-friendly.
Can't you do the analysis for me?
Being self-employed, I have to
operate commercially, so I have little possibility to work
for free. If it's a limited (or very interesting) analysis,
and if time permits, I might help you for free. If it's more
work, I have to be funded from somewhere (see DEBtox Research for my
Why don't you have some nice user-friendly software for
Because we are not software
engineers. The people that made these Matlab, Octave, R and
NetLogo packages are scientists, who do not get paid to
develop nice software for everybody to use (and probably
also do not have the expertise for that). But, if you are a
programming enthousiast, and you are willing to build
something (that can be distributed for free, or used as a
web-application) ... do not hesitate to contact me!
