Abstract Four exercises provided in the attached PDF ask students to create simple reactions within the Virtual Cell. Students are asked to evaluate steady state for a single species, isomerization and buffering of calcium
Physiology biochemical reactions
Model description Deterministic models
Model files CSHL_CCB_VCell_Example_1.vcml
All exercise models are available in via the Virtual Cell in the shared/public folder of Brown. Note that these models were created with VCell 4.7
Model exercises 04Brown_VC_SmithExamples.pdf contains four detailed exercises. Each exercise consist of two VCell model: one incomplete and one complete. The first is the model as it would be created prior to running simulations and the model with simulations that examine different model or simulation parameters. The "completed" is essentially the desired simulation results for the exercise.
