Programming computer models of biological systems is a fun and powerful way to learn about the complex processes that control human health and disease. For example, computer models can help us better understand how our bodies work, identify the underlying causes of diseases, and identify new therapies to treat and cure diseases. The purpose of this community is to provide examples of biological models that can be used to teach learners of all ages -- from kindergarten through college, and beyond -- how to model biology with computer simulations. This community is managed by the IMAG-MSM's Public Dissemination & Education Working Group.
