The process of physiological decline leading to death of the individual is driven by the deteriorating capacity to withstand extrinsic and intrinsic hazards, resulting in damage accumulation with age. The dynamic changes with time of the network governing the outcome of misfolded proteins, exemplifying as intrinsic hazards, is considered here as a paradigm(More)
Aggregates of misfolded proteins are a hallmark of many age-related diseases. Recently, they have been linked to aging of Escherichia coli (E. coli) where protein aggregates accumulate at the old pole region of the aging bacterium. Because of the potential of E. coli as a model organism, elucidating aging and protein aggregation in this bacterium may pave(More)
We propose a new image analysis method to segment and track cells in a growing colony. By using an intermediate low-dimension image representation yielded by a reliable over-segmentation process, we combine the advantages of two-steps methods (possibility to check intermediate results) and the power of simultaneous segmentation and tracking algorithms,(More)
Bacteria suffer various stresses in their unpredictable environment. In response, clonal populations may exhibit cell-to-cell variation, hypothetically to maximize their survival. The origins, propagation, and consequences of this variability remain poorly understood. Variability persists through cell division events, yet detailed lineage information for(More)
