We consider an in-host model for HIV-1 infection dynamics developed and validated with patient data in earlier work [7]. We revisit the earlier model in light of progress over the last several years in understanding HIV-1 progression in humans. We then consider statistical models to describe the data and use these with residual plots in generalized least(More)
In this study we use statistical validation techniques to verify density-dependent mechanisms hypothesized for populations of Daphnia magna. We develop structured population models that exemplify specific mechanisms and use multi-scale experimental data in order to test their importance. We show that fecundity and survival rates are affected by both(More)

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a single-stranded RNA virus that infects the hepatocytes of the liver. Infected cells become damaged and release alanine aminotransferase (ALT), which exists normally within liver cells. Our main goal in this project was to determine the usefullness of ALT levels to determine the outcome of HCV treatment and viral load levels. As(More)
