BACKGROUND Systems biology aims to understand biological systems on a comprehensive scale, such that the components that make up the whole are connected to one another and work through dependent interactions. Molecular correlations and comparative studies of molecular expression are crucial to establishing interdependent connections in systems biology. The(More)

Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) release from rabbit erythrocytes occurs in response to deformation or reduced oxygen tension. A signal transduction pathway that relates these stimuli to ATP release has been proposed. This pathway includes the heterotrimeric G proteins, Gs and Gi, adenylyl cyclase, protein kinase A, and the cystic fibrosis transmembrane(More)
Quality teaching is an important factor in university life, but not all learning takes place in the classroom. Indeed, we encourage students to attend office hours, but crucial learning also takes place through mentoring and exposure to the mathematical research community. A good teacher focuses not just on classroom instruction but on one-on-one guidance(More)
Families of systems are prevalent in software engineering, and many techniques are available for the analysis and implementation of such families. Embedded systems families provide additional constraints on these techniques, and safety-critical systems families constrain them even further. An existing family analysis technique is combined with a layering(More)
