We have investigated different algorithms for the simulation of kinetics of small systems. We have simulated the first order reversible reaction with the Gillespie, Gibson and Bruck time simulation as a function of Poisson distribution and compared the results of three algorithms. We have also simulated intracellular viral kinetics for a genome with Gillespie and Poisson distribution algorithms.
