Congratulations to CTMR Team Core D for their JGP May cover showing “A detailed computational model of striated muscle elucidates how mutations and drugs may alter twitch timing. The spatially explicit model simulates myosin motors connected within a compliant, contractile lattice, complete with thin filament regulation and varying mutation penetrance. The model yields data used…
