Multi-level computational modelling of bacteria lung infection: From molecules and cells to agent-based modelling and GPU comput

Beschreibung:Pneumococcal infection is the most frequent cause of lung infection and one of the most prevalent diseases worldwide. The disease specially affects infants, elderly and immunosuppressed people. The response of the body to bacterial lung infections is a mechanism involving dynamic interactions between several types of immune cells whose activity is controlled by a complex intracellular molecular circuitry involving genes and proteins. We have recently explored the use of multi-level computational modelling to simulate and analyse the very early phase of alveolar invasion of Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria. To this end, we have combined ODE and agent-based modelling, and we now explore the use of GPU computing to scale the model in time and space.
