We present the Stochastic Simulator Compiler (SSC), a tool for exact stochastic simulations of well-mixed and spatially heterogeneous systems. SSC is the first tool to allow a readable high-level description with spatially heterogeneous simulation algorithms and complex geometries; this permits large systems to be expressed concisely. Meanwhile, direct native-code compilation allows SSC to generate very fast simulations.
