A Deterministic Compartmental Model for Erythropoeisis with R

March 28, 2015

(This article was first published on MATHEMATICS IN MEDICINE, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Recently I have finished working on and developing a deterministic, compartmental model of erythropoeisis (How Red Blood Cells are produced and destroyed) in R using deSolve package. I have also made a Shiny application for the simulation. The model can be used as a primer for developing more complicated models, eg. for competing erythpoeisis in post bone marrow transplant settings.

The model and description is available at GitHub site, https://github.com/sumprain/blog/tree/master/erythropoeisis_model.

The description of the model is given in model_description.html, model_description.Rmd and model_description.md files

The shiny application can be found at shiny folder.

The work.R file is the source file for the R code.

Please feel free to comment and post your criticisms.
