Funding Acknowledgements

This research was supported in parts by a Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative (VLSCI) grant number VR0088 on its Peak Computing Facility at the University of Melbourne, an initiative of the Victorian Government. We would like to acknowledge and thank Olaf Dossel at the Institute for Biomedical Engineering, KIT, Karlsruhe, Germany, who provided the anatomical heart model. We thank Fred Mintzer who has generously provided us the time on the IBM T. J. Watson Blue Gene/L and Blue Gene/P system to scale our heart model to 32,768 cores. In addition, we would like to thank David Singer who has supported our work through system administration. Finally, we would like to thank Robert Germain who has provided us with the tools to analyze the time trace data for all simulation runs.
