In vivo continuous evolution of metabolic pathways for chemical production
In vivo genetic diversification, phenotypic selection, and continuous cultivation are the key elements in in vivo continuous evolution, where any human intervention in the process is prohibited, and are crucial in highly efficient evolution strategy of metabolic pathway evolution.
Catalytic enzymes are active matter
It is shown that catalysis boosts the motion of enzymes to be superdiffusive for a few microseconds, enhancing their effective diffusivity over longer timescales, violating the classical paradigm that chemical reaction and motility are distinct processes.
The dispersion of air-borne spores
Chemical processing of biogenic hydrocarbons within and above a temperate deciduous forest
A one-dimensional canopy model was developed to study photochemical processes inside and above a mixed deciduous forest in southern Ontario. The Eulerian model made use of Lagrangian dispersion
Tools to analyse cell signaling models
This thesis presents a compendium of techniques for analysing the qualitative and quantitative characteristics of cell-signaling models, and demonstrates how these techniques can be used to extract useful information from quantitative models.
The diffusion of particulate matter from an elevated source
SummaryThe problem of the diffusion of particulate matter from an elevated source is important to industry, to agriculture and to public health. On the experimental and theoretical side, simple
Origins of eukaryotic excitability
The ancestral repertoire of eukaryotic excitability is described and five major cellular innovations that enabled its evolutionary origin are discussed, including a vastly expanded repertoire of ion channels, the emergence of cilia and pseudopodia, endomembranes as intracellular capacitors, a flexible plasma membrane and the relocation of chemiosmotic ATP synthesis to mitochondria.
