Since Python is embedded inside TinkerCell, a user does not need Python installed on his/her computer in order to use Python in TinkerCell. Of course, this is not an issue for Linux users, because it is very easy to install Python modules.
Various useful Python modules will be included in TinkerCell.
NumPy and SciPy are Python modules with functions ranging from numerical integration to statistics. Get more information at numpy.scipy.org and www.scipy.org
PySCeS builds on SciPy and provides various useful functionalities for analysis of dynamical systems, particularly biological systems. Get more information at pysces.sourceforge.net
Networkx is a module with a few useful graph algorithms, particularly graph layout algorithms. Get more information at networkx.lanl.gov
