Abstract

This paper discusses on going work on simulating the propogation within the cell of a prion protein in yeast. The biological background to the project is outlined, and a number of questions about this system are posed. The paper then discusses how computer simulation is being used to provide a ''virtual laboratory'' for this system, which will be employed to support and understand real experiments. Futhermore, the development of the application is detailed with emphasis on the challenges encountered to date.
