  At least the "hu-SCID Lymph node Simulator" requires X-Windows and 
moreover it requires a direct Internet connection (no firewall) to
the simulation engine machine.   So as a piece of groupware for WWW,
it needs some work, eg to generate graphs or movies and send them back
in jpeg or mpeg forms.  But it looks like a great start.
