    • High-throughput experimental and computational studies of bacterial evolution 

      Barquist, Lars (2014-01-07)
      The work in this thesis is concerned with the study of bacterial adaptation on short and long timescales. In the first section, consisting of three chapters, I describe a recently developed high-throughput technology for ...
    • Programmed hierarchical patterning of bacterial populations. 

      Boehm, Christian; Grant, Paul K; Haseloff, James Phillip (Springer Nature, 2018-02-22)
      Modern genetic tools allow the dissection and emulation of fundamental mechanisms shaping morphogenesis in multicellular organisms. Several synthetic genetic circuits for control of multicellular patterning have been ...
    • Spatiotemporal Self-Organization of Fluctuating Bacterial Colonies. 

      Grafke, Tobias; Cates, Michael Elmhirst; Vanden-Eijnden, Eric (APS, 2017-11-03)
      We model an enclosed system of bacteria, whose motility-induced phase separation is coupled to slow population dynamics. Without noise, the system shows both static phase separation and a limit cycle, in which a rising ...
    • Transmission-mode imaging in the environmental scanning electron microscope (ESEM) 

      Staniewicz, Lech Thomas Leif (2012-02-07)
      Electron microscopy was first conducted in the 1930s with the advent of the TEM and later the STEM. In 1969, the first commercial SEM was released, with the possibility of retrofitting it to behave like a STEM following ...
    • Wolbachia in butterflies and moths: geographic structure in infection frequency 

      Ahmed, Muhammad Z; Araujo, Eli V Jr; Welch, John Joseph; Kawahara, Akito Y (BioMed Central, 2015-07-16)
      Introduction: Butterflies and moths (Lepidoptera) constitute one of the most diverse insect orders, and play an important role in ecosystem function. However, little is known in terms of their bacterial communities. ...
