Oscillations in cell biology

Oscillations in cell biology

Karsten Kruse and Frank Jülicher // Max Planck Institut fur Physik komplexer Systeme Oscillations play an important role in many dynamic cellular processes. They can emerge as the collective dynamic behavior of an ensemble of interacting components in the cell. Examples include oscillations in cytoskeletal structures such as the axonemes of cilia. Spontaneous oscillations of...
Cultivation of an Obligate Fe(II)-Oxidizing Lithoautotrophic Bacterium Using Electrodes

Cultivation of an Obligate Fe(II)-Oxidizing Lithoautotrophic Bacterium Using Electrodes

Neutrophilic obligate Fe(II)-oxidizing bacteria (FeOB) are prevalent throughout the world in both marine and fresh- water environments, and these microbes play a direct role in the global iron cycle (1).
Synthetic biology:  applications come of age

Synthetic biology: applications come of age

Synthetic biology is bringing together engineers and biologists to design and build novel biomolecular components, networks and pathways, and to use these constructs to rewire and reprogram organisms. These re-engineered organisms will change our lives over the coming years, leading to cheaper drugs, ‘green’ means to fuel our cars and targeted therapies for attacking ‘superbugs’...
ULF Geomagnetic Changes Associated with Large Earthquakes

ULF Geomagnetic Changes Associated with Large Earthquakes

There is a good deal of accumulated evidence of precursory signatures in a wide frequency range (DC-VHF). ULF geomagnetic change is one of the most promising phenomena and it suggests that short-term prediction is realizable.
A Cosmology of Invisible Fluids: Wireless, X-Rays, and Psychical Research around 1900

A Cosmology of Invisible Fluids: Wireless, X-Rays, and Psychical Research around 1900

This article traces the relations between the early histories of wireless and X-ray technology. It does so by highlighting the role played by psychic research to open the connections between different technologies and knowledges.
