This resource is an exercise to introduce students to agent-based modeling of biological systems through working with a simple existing model. It is intended both to show them how to use a simulation for hypothesis testing, and also how to perform the 'simulation cycle' -- build a model, generate data using the model, compare to the real world, determine what is missing in the model, update the model, and generate data using the model.

Statement from the managing editor (Sam Donovan):
We think that there is a lot of potential for this unit to help students experience the use of bioinformatics approaches to solving biological problems.
