Provides an introduction to Agent Based Model simulation and the basic biology of wound healing.
This is a simple Agent Based Model of the immune response to a hypothetical wound. The model accompanies a Science News for Students article as a supplement to allow readers the opportunity to directly experiment with biological simulation. Adjust the strength of the immune response, the number of bacteria in the wound, the bacterial colony growth rate, and other parameters to view the time course of healing.
