Center for Modeling Immunity to Enteric Pathogens Releases Revolutionary Software

BLACKSBURG, Va., Oct. 5th, 2011 - Researchers from the Center for Modeling Immunity to Enteric Pathogens (MIEP) at the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute have released an upgrade to the revolutionary ENteric Immunity SImulator (ENISI) software. ENISI models immune responses to beneficial and harmful bacteria that enter the gastrointestinal tract (GI) of mice, pigs and humans. ENISI allows users to create enteric systems such as the gut-associated mucosal immune system in silico, providing a better glimpse of how the immune system responds to pathogens that invade the bacteria-rich environment of the gut.
