For the exercise portion of this module, you can explore and play
around with the models in the Model use examples
section of DSAIRM.
We recommend that no matter what your level of coding is, you should
at least briefly explore the models, read the documentation and attempt
the suggested tasks by using the graphical interface of DSAIRM.
Once you explored the models, you can go in several directions. Here
are some suggestions:
- If you want to learn more about fitting, you can go through the
models in the Model fitting section.
- If you want to try your hand at doing some exploration/prediction,
you can for instance take the Virus and immune response model
and write a bit of code using the Level 2 approach described in
tutorial to loop over some model parameter and plot it.
- If you want to build your own model, you can do that using one of
the DSAIRM models and modify it (see Level 3 in the DSAIRM
tutorial), then loop over some parameters for exploration/prediction. If
none of the DSAIRM models are good starting points, you can also build
one using modelbuilder and then write a bit of code to loop
over a parameter (or use the parameter scan option in the
modelbuilder analyze tab).
- If you have some expertise fitting models to data, you could try to
use some dataset you have, take the code for one of the fitting apps,
and adjust the code and model to work with your data. Warning: That is
