How Do Immune Cells Detect Infections?

Previous research, published in Nature Immunology by investigators in the US suggested that the T cells of the immune system behave in a similar way to bees when coordinating responses to disease pathogens and vaccines - sharing essential information in the same way.

This study, which was published in the journal Physical Review Letters, involved using computational models to find out what solutions the immune system uses to identify foreign antigens (which can cause infections).
