We investigate the collective motion of a two-dimensional disordered ensemble of droplets in a microfluidic channel far from equilibrium and at Reynolds number approximately 10(-4). The ensemble carries ultraslow shock waves and sound, propagating at approximately 100 microm s(-1) and superposed on diffusive droplets motion. These modes are induced by(More)
Concomitant expression of mutant p53 and oncogenic Ras, leading to cellular transformation, is well documented. However, the mechanisms by which the various mutant p53 categories cooperate with Ras remain largely obscure. From this study we suggest that different mutant p53 categories cooperate with H-Ras in different ways to induce a unique expression(More)
We present an approach for an autonomous system that detects a particular state of interest in a living cell and can govern cell fate accordingly. Cell states could be better identified by the expression pattern of several genes than of a single one. Therefore, autonomous identification can be achieved by a system that measures the expression of these(More)
We investigate the acoustic normal modes ("phonons") of a 1D microfluidic droplet crystal at the crossover between 2D flow and confined 1D plug flow. The unusual phonon spectra of the crystal, which arise from long-range hydrodynamic interactions, change anomalously under confinement. The boundaries induce weakening and screening of the interactions, but(More)
We discuss the basic physics of the flow of micron-scale droplets in 2D geometry. Our focus is on the use of droplet ensembles to look into fundamental questions of non-equilibrium systems, such as the emergence of dynamic patterns and irreversibility. We review recent research in these directions, which demonstrate that 2D microfluidics is uniquely set to(More)
Living organisms often have to adapt to sudden environmental changes and reach homeostasis. To achieve adaptation, cells deploy motifs such as feedback in their genetic networks, endowing the cellular response with desirable properties. We studied the iron homeostasis network of E. coli, which employs feedback loops to regulate iron usage and uptake, while(More)
