Dynamical Systems Approach to Immune Response Modeling
DSAIRM is an R package containing a set of simulation modelss (apps) that teach within-host infection dynamics and immune response modeling from a dynamical system perspective.
All models can be explored through a graphical user interface, no reading or writing code is required. Each app comes with documentation and instructions which teach important concepts of within-host and immune response modeling, and how to use simulation models to understand such concepts.
It is also possible to go beyond the graphical interface and directly access and modify all simulations to adapt them to your needs.
While the main idea is to install the R package and use it locally, if you want to get a quick glimpse at the package to see if this package is for you, you can give it a quick try online, without having to install it. If you like what you see, you can install it and start using it with these 3 commands:
install.packages('DSAIRM') library('DSAIRM') dsairmmenu()
For an introduction to the package, step-by-step instructions on getting started, and more information on the different ways you can use the package see the Get Started tutorial (vignette).
If the package does in any way help you with your work such that it warrants citing it, please cite the DSAIRM publication in BMC Immunology.
