Fundamental Limits to the Precision of Multicellular Sensing
27 Jun 2017 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Andrew Mugler
Here we address, with both theory and experiments, whether cell-cell communication improves concentration- and gradient-sensing precision. We develop a minimal model of collective sensing by cells...
Glass transition temperature notebook

Unsupervised Learning to Unravel Differential Cell Fate Outcomes
17 Jan 2017 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Kristen Naegle
Cells are constantly receiving cues from the outside world and responding to them by altering their physiological fate by transducing this signal via intracellular biochemical networks. An...

Tracking the Maturation of Organelles and Signaling Cluster with Quantitative Super-Resolution Microscopy
15 Dec 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Elias M. Puchner
Quantitative Super-Resolution Microscopy is evolving into a powerful technique to study biological processes below the optical diffraction limit. However, a deeper understanding of the biological...
Characterizing Noise in a Mathematical Model of the Adipogenic Transcriptional Network
15 Dec 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Alexandra Jilkine
For each model, we first characterized overall susceptibility to noise by calculating the relative local sensitivity of AdipoQ and fat to various parameters. We then simulated the experiment done...
Population Density Modulates Antibiotic Efficacy, Treatment Bistability, and the Evolution of Resistance in Bacteria
13 Dec 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Kevin Wood
In this talk, I will discuss our recent work to address these questions by measuring real-time per capita growth of Enterococcus faecalis populations at fixed population densities using...
Atomic Resolution Brownian Dynamics

GPU-accelerated Brownian dynamics simulation tool for biomolecular and nanotechnological systems
Tissue-Level Communication Through Patterning Of Intercellular Ca2+ Wave Dynamics
22 Nov 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jeremiah J. Zartman
Here we characterize periodic intercellular Ca2+ waves (ICWs) in a model organ system of epithelial growth and patterning—the Drosophila wing imaginal disc. We developed a novel regulated...
Decoding the Epigenetic Language of Life
22 Nov 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jian-Kang Zhu
I will describe work in my lab that has shed light on how DNA methyltransferases and demethylases are guided to specific sequences, and how the antagonistic actions of the enzymes are coordinated...
