Fundamental Limits to the Precision of Multicellular Sensing
26 Jun 2017 | | 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 that communicate via juxtacrine signaling, in which a small molecule is exchanged between...

Calculate the glass transition temperature of an atomistic, amorphous system by running MD simulations in a notebook
A profile of a Nano EPICS High School - Agawam High School
10 May 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Tamecia Raishaun Jones
This is a short profile of an EPICS High School that has found a way to integrate nano into its curriculum. The profile describes how the teacher used her specialized background in marine biology to create a plan for nano project in a marine biology classroom. At the time, this...

Unsupervised Learning to Unravel Differential Cell Fate Outcomes
09 Dec 2016 | | 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 important mechanism that many cell networks utilize to transduce these signals is the regulation of protein...

Tracking the Maturation of Organelles and Signaling Cluster with Quantitative Super-Resolution Microscopy
09 Dec 2016 | | 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 structures under investigation is often limited by the inability to quantify their molecular...
Characterizing Noise in a Mathematical Model of the Adipogenic Transcriptional Network
09 Dec 2016 | | 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 by Loo et al. with 30% added noise to determine if our system could replicate their data. Our results...
Population Density Modulates Antibiotic Efficacy, Treatment Bistability, and the Evolution of Resistance in Bacteria
09 Dec 2016 | | 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 multiplexed computer-automated culture devices. We show that density-dependent growth inhibition is pervasive...

Tissue-Level Communication Through Patterning Of Intercellular Ca2+ Wave Dynamics
21 Nov 2016 | | 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 environment for micro-organs (REM-Chip) device that enable a broad range of genetic, chemical and...
