read a scientific paper on a topic of your choice from the mathematical biology literature. Computationally implement the model in the paper and extend the paper’s results. Your extension may be mathematical or computational. Prepare a presentation of the paper and your extension
Proposals. Due on Thursday, Mar. 27, or sooner: • What are you planning to do? Specifically, what paper are you planning to read, and how are you planning to extend the model? What question(s) do you plan to investigate? (1 – 3 sentences is fine.)
Progress Report. Due Thursday, April 2, or sooner: • Report progress on model development and simulation, data/model parameter estimation, analysis, and model interpretation/conclusions • What have you completed? What is your next step? • What is your role (if part of a group project)?
Final paper due April 5

I prefer the paper in the top but there are more then 40 different papers you can choose any of them and I can send you the paper if you give me the number of it
I’ll attach the first paper for now
also, I have attached the guidelines for the paper please check
