Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD) provides a new method for analyzing signals from a nonlinear viewpoint. EMD is defined by an algorithm requiring experimental investigation instead of rigorous mathematical analysis. We show that EMD yields its own interpretation of combinations of pure tones. We present the problem of mode mixing and give a solution(More)
The linkage of two mutations leading to increased sensitivity to ultraviolet light and 60Co gamma rays was determined in the slime mould Dictyostelium discoideum using a genetic analysis based on the parasexual cycle. Diploids were selected from a mixture of radiation-sensitive, temperature-resistant and radiation-resistant, temperature-sensitive haploids(More)
An assay based on forward mutation of Dictyostelium discoideum to 3% methanol resistance allows quantitation of induced mutation following treatment with physical and chemical agents. Properties of this assay are: uniform recovery of methanol-resistant (MeOHr) cells over a wide range of plated cell densities, equal growth rates of methanol-sensitive and(More)
We have identified a developmentally repressed large-subunit ribosomal protein gene of Dictyostelium discoideum based on sequence similarity to other ribosomal proteins. Protein rpl7 is homologous to large subunit ribosomal proteins from the rat and possibly to Mycoplasma capricolum and Escherichia coli, but is not similar to three sequenced ribosomal(More)
