Download E. coli in Motion (Biological and Medical Physics, by Howard C. Berg PDF

By Howard C. Berg

Escherichia coli, usually known as E. coli, has been the organism of selection for molecular genetics for many years. Its equipment and cellular habit is likely one of the so much interesting themes for phone scientists. Scientists and engineers, now not expert in microbiology, and who want to study extra approximately dwelling machines, can see it as a different instance. This cross-disciplinary monograph covers greater than thirty years of study and is offered to graduate scholars and scientists alike.

Flüchten oder Bleiben? Rekonstruktion biographischer Verläufe und Ressourcen von Emigranten im Nationalsozialismus

Sylke Bartmann zeigt anhand der Rekonstruktion biographischer Verläufe von Emigranten unterschiedliche Umgehensweisen mit dem Nationalsozialismus und damit verbundene Repressalien und Bedrohungen auf. Der Fokus richtet sich dabei auf den Einzelnen als Akteur und Gestalter seines eigenen Lebens. Es wird die Frage beantwortet, inwieweit in den Prozessen der Biographisierung Ressourcen zum Ausdruck kommen, die das Leben im Nationalsozialismus (weiterhin) als zusammenhängend und sinnvoll erscheinen lassen - auch wenn dem einzelnen Menschen die Welt manchmal sinnentleert gegenüberzustehen scheint.

So, in a certain sense, our experience in water differs from that of E. coli by a factor of 1010. Our inertia is large, and it is easy for us to push off and coast from one side of the pool to the other. If you want to model what life is like for E. coli on a larger scale (by scaling up l and/or v), then you also must scale up h (work with a highly viscous medium). So use glycerol or corn syrup or a thick silicone oil, and don’t move things too rapidly. This restriction was not clearly understood until the work of Ludwig (1930), whose contribution was forgotten by the time the problem was taken up again by Taylor (1952).
