Open-source, collaborative avian flu fighting

This page in:

Christine Gorman points us to the recently announced Global Pandemic Initiative:

IBM and 20 academic and public health organizations today announced a computer-based, collaborative effort to fight bird flu and other potential emerging disease threats. As part of the effort, IBM will contribute some software elements to the open-source community to help share information and make predictions about how a pandemic will develop and how best to respond to one.

See the IBM press release. IBM’s STEM computer-modeling tool will surely trump the innovative approach.
