LTG Research projects
20. Understanding the Evolution and Emergence of Pandemic Influenza
Together with collaborators in the Zoology Department, Ken Kahn and Howard Noble of OUCS took cutting edge modelling research in the Zoology Department and produced learning materials to enable students to engage with the conceptual structure of the research but in a form that doesn’t require extensive technical and mathematical background. We packaged the technical details of the computer models into a library of transparent modular components that the students can combine and explore without prior training. Our goal is to take on-going research and build computational resources and tools that enable students to engage with the research by building computer models.
