Experiments with myxobacterial aggregates reveal standing waves called rippling patterns. Here these structures are modeled with a simple discrete model based on the interplay between migration and collisions of cells. Head-to-head collisions of cells result in cell reversals. To correctly reproduce the rippling patterns, a refractory phase after each cell(More)
Self-organization processes in multicellular aggregates of bacteria and amoebae offer fascinating insights into the evolution of cooperation and differentiation of cells. During myxobacterial development a variety of spatio-temporal patterns emerges such as counterpropagating waves of cell density that are known as rippling. Recently, several models have(More)
MOTIVATION The analysis of metabolic processes is becoming increasingly important to our understanding of complex biological systems and disease states. Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) is a particularly relevant technology in this respect, since the NMR signals provide a quantitative measure of the metabolite concentrations. However, due to(More)
