Explore calcium (Ca) and phosphate (Pi) homeostasis with two novel 'Shiny' apps, building upon on a previously published mathematical model written in C, to ensure efficient computations. The underlying model is accessible here < https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28747359>. The first application explores the fundamentals of Ca-Pi homeostasis, while the second provides interactive case studies for in-depth exploration of the topic, thereby seeking to foster student engagement and an integrative understanding of Ca-Pi regulation. These applications are hosted at < https://rinterface.com/AppsPhysiol.html>.
This apps were developed in the Interface Group.
As this package is not currently on CRAN, install it via devtools:
There are two ways to run these apps:
library(CaPO4Sim)# entry level apprun_CaPO4Sim(context = "introduction")# virtual patient Bootstrap 4run_CaPO4Sim(context = "virtual-patient")
The Bootstrap 3 version will not be updated anymore but can be accessed here.
I thank RStudio for providing us with RStudio Connect licences. All illustration backgrounds were designed by Tara Von Grebel and animations were produced by Janine Meyer, both of the Multimedia and eLearning-Services, University of Zurich.
