    • Control and Manipulation of Pathogens with an Optical Trap for Live Cell Imaging of Intercellular Interactions 

      Tam, Jenny M.; Castro, Carlos E.; Heath, Robert John William; Cardenas, Michael L.; Xavier, Ramnik; Lang, Matthew J.; Vyas, Jatin Mahesh (Public Library of Science, 2010)
      The application of live cell imaging allows direct visualization of the dynamic interactions between cells of the immune system. Some preliminary observations challenge long-held beliefs about immune responses to microorganisms; ...
    • Fungal Levels in the Home and Allergic Rhinitis by 5 Years of Age 

      Stark, Paul C.; Celedón, Juan C.; Chew, Ginger L.; Ryan, Louise Marie; Burge, Harriet A.; Muilenberg, Michael L.; Gold, Diane R. (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2005)
      Studies have repeatedly demonstrated that sensitization to fungi, such as Alternaria, is strongly associated with allergic rhinitis and asthma in children. However, the role of exposure to fungi in the development of ...

      Background: After Hurricane Katrina, many New Orleans homes remained flooded for weeks, promoting heavy microbial growth. Objectives: A small demonstration project was conducted November 2005–January 2006 aiming to recommend ...
    • Quantifying Patterns of Morphological Diversity 

      Fritz, Joerg (2013-10-18)
      One of the central questions of biology is how shape is formed by the interaction
    • Random network peristalsis in Physarum polycephalum organizes fluid flows across an individual 

      Alim, Karen; Amselem, G.; Peaudecerf, F.; Brenner, Michael P.; Pringle, Anne E. (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2013)
      Individuals can function as integrated organisms only when information and resources are shared across a body. Signals and substrates are commonly moved using fluids, often channeled through a network of tubes. Peristalsis ...
