Microfluidic simulation of a colonial diatom chain reveals oscillatory movement

Abstract

Diatoms are single-celled organisms with rigid parts in relative motion at the microand nanometer length scales. Some diatom species form colonies comprising many cells. In this manuscript, the results of a two-dimensional finite element computer model are presented. This model was established to discover if diatom colonies start to exhibit some kind of… (More)
