Fundamental Limits to the Precision of Multicellular Sensing
27 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...
Geometry of Diffusion and the Performance Limits of Nanobiosensors
05 Dec 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam, Pradeep Ramachandran Nair
This presentation demonstrates how the classical diffusion-capture (D-C) model has improved sensor performance, since the D-C model is a "geometry of diffusion" rather than a "geometry of electrostatics." A scaling law based on D-C is also posited; the scaling law resolves many classical puzzles...
