A cell number-counting factor regulates group size in Dictyostelium discoideum
Little is known about how a morphogenetic rearrangement of a tissue is effected by the individual cells. Starving Dictyostelium discoideum cells aggregate to form dendritic streams which then break up into groups of ∼2 x 104 cells. Cell number is sensed using counting factor (CF), a secreted complex of polypeptides. A high extracellular concentration ...
High-Performance Communication Protocols for Asynchronous Duty-Cycling Wireless Networks
Duty cycling is a technique for saving energy in resource-limited wireless networks such as sensor networks. With duty cycling, each node periodically switches between active and sleeping states, for example being active for only 1 to 10 percent of the time. Wireless duty-cycling networks face many challenges such as maintaining high energy efficiency, ...
Data-Driven Tools for Introductory Computer Science Education
The software industry spends a tremendous amount of effort and resources on software testing and maintenance to improve the quality of software. However, a large portion of the cost may be saved by training high-quality software developers with better Computer Science education. Skilled software developers can not only produce code of fewer bugs and ...
