Required Evidence

Earn the muscle model explorer badge

Demonstrate that you have earned the muscle model explorer badge by screenshotting your badgelist account showing the earned badge awarded to you. More Info

Re-run the muscle model figure command

In the muscle model explorer badge, you ran the command to produce 4 figures that show output from the muscle model. Do this again, screenshotting all 4 figures and upload here. You only need to do this for LEMS_Figure2A.xml. This will be a baseline for comparison for further steps. More Info

First modification - get rid of k_fast

See the wiki instructions (More Info...) for this evidence step. You will be modifying code and uploading the result as evidence. More Info

Interpret the results of the first modification

What differences do you notice between the graphs that came out from the unmodified version and the ones that came out after your change? Write out a description of the modifications and try to interpret the changes based on the underlying biology. More Info

Second modification - alter k_fast

See the wiki instructions for this evidence step (More Info...). You will be modifying code and uploading the result. More Info

Interpret the results of the second modification

What differences do you notice between the graphs that came out from the unmodified version and the ones that came out after your second change? Write out a description of the modifications and try to interpret the changes based on the underlying biology. More Info
