The Cell and the City

Enter a virtual city whose architecture, inhabitants, activities, and functions are modeled upon the dynamic systems of the pancreatic beta cell. Here, one may engage biological concepts and processes experientially, or imagine cities of the future in which AI, architecture, and mobility reflect principles such as protein folding and shape conformation. More than simply a virtual sandbox, this unique, semantically rich, immersive space also serves as an extensible framework affording scientists the ability to examine existing data, connect to related work, and share results.
