Recent studies reveal that suspensions of neutrally buoyant non-brownian particles driven by slow periodic shear can undergo a dynamical phase transition between a fluctuating irreversible steady state and an absorbing reversible state. Using a computer model, we show that such systems exhibit self-organized criticality when a finite particle sedimentation(More)
During sporulation in Bacillus subtilis, the onset of activity of the late forespore-specific sigma factor σG coincides with completion of forespore engulfment by the mother cell. At this stage, the forespore becomes a free protoplast, surrounded by the mother cell cytoplasm and separated from it by two membranes that derive from the asymmetric division(More)
