Default Hey.... this is way cool too!!!

Check this out, Modeling Cancer Using Ecological Principles, "New species invading an existing ecosystem has literally the same impact as a cancer that metastasizes. In a new study, researchers used the Tilman model of competition between invasive species in order to investigate the metastasis of prostate cells into bone. The research is published in BioMed Central's open access journal Theoretical Biology and Medical Modelling."
