We surveyed genomic resources for the incidence of calcins (a type of calcium channel toxin), which were previously known only from 16 scorpion species.  ...  Analysis of sequences and molecular models demonstrates remarkable phylogenetic inertia within both calcins and LKTx genes.  ...  Access to computing nodes provided by the Center for High Throughput Computing (CHTC) and the Bioinformatics Resource Center (BRC) of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  ...
