We use agent based modeling to capture the possible mechanisms of species coexistence, epidemics and concurrent immunity spread of multiple competing diseases, or to explore the role of bacterial immunity (CRISPR) in phage-bacteria ecosystem. We have also developed a number of tools to analyze complex networks from an informaton perspecitve.
