I have several ODEs describing the behavior of dividing particles (e.g., How to model multi-step cell differentiation). I would like to plot these ODEs based on changing values of p over time. I would appreciate any advice on what graphics program would be suitable for this task.

I'm fairly sure you can perform this sort of thing in Mathematica. If you have Mathematica, check the documentation center for what you are looking for. – Samuel Reid Dec 28 '11 at 19:09

I'll second Matlab but make specific metion to the Matlab toolkits pplane and Matcont.

Matcont is particularly useful for investigating bifurcations, which seems to be what you're interested in.

I'd use either MATLAB or Python for that. Both have strong visualization capabilities.

You should have a lok at SAGE, a free open-source mathematics software.
