From Zhu and Clancy: "... Here we employ theoretical simulations to examine the effects of a Timothy Syndrome (TS) mutation in the L-type Ca2+ channel on cardiac dynamics over multiple scales, from a gene mutation to protein, cell, tissue, and finally the ECG, to connect a defective Ca2+ channel to arrhythmia susceptibility. ..."
Simulation Environment: C or C++ program
Implementer(s): Zhu, Zheng I. [zhz2001 at med.cornell.edu]
