Dark matter clues in oldest stars

A computer model of the early Universe indicates the first stars could have formed in spectacular, long filaments.

These structures, which may have been thousands of light-years across, would have been shaped by "dark matter".

Scientists know very little about this type of matter, even though it accounts for most of the mass in the cosmos.

This is something I have an interest in, but don't know much about, as I don't have the physics to fully understand.
The theory is basically a computer model - but as we know, these models are only as good as the data input.
So does this take science any loser to a real understanding of dark matter?
