Hyphal growth simulation

In this project, the growth of fungal hyphae is modeled. As a parameterized approach, different hyphal structures can be learned, simulated and reproduced for further analysis or applications. The algorithm is implemented as a recursive approach, which allows to potentially grow a new hyphal branch at each depth level. The angle of curvature, frequency of new branching, and piercing (in the alveolus) is also parameterized, making it highly adaptable for different scenarios. Interactions with immune cells (alveolar macrophages) is realized according to the set of rules within the agent-based modeling.
