|In Silico Reconstitution of Actin-Based Motility (also see the CometWiki!)
How actin polymerization produces force, demonstrated by a computer simulation.
|Choanoflagellates and Animal Multicellularity
Single-celled and multi-celled choanoflagellates, the closest known relatives of animals—how they can help us understand how animals first evolved.
|How Arp2/3 Complex Nucleates Actin Filaments
The mechanism of a molecular machine, the Arp2/3 complex, which nucleates networks of actin filaments to produce force within cells.
|Continuity of, and Diffusion through, the Endoplasmic Reticulum
Investigating the mobility of proteins in the Endoplasmic Reticulum, the tubular network within cells where proteins are made for export.
|The Trabecular Bone Pattern as a window into Osteoporosis
Analyzing the patterns found in x-ray images of bones to tell us about osteopenia.
|Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM)
This technique gives us an extra dimension of fluorescence information
