Biophysics : searching for principles by William S Bialek( Book )

13 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interactions between the fields of physics and biology reach back over a century, and some of the most significant developments in biology--from the discovery of DNA's structure to imaging of the human brain--have involved collaboration across this disciplinary boundary. For a new generation of physicists, the phenomena of life pose exciting challenges to physics itself, and biophysics has emerged as an important subfield of this discipline. Here, William Bialek provides the first graduate-level introduction to biophysics aimed at physics students

Network-Scale Electrophysiology: Measuring and Understanding the Collective Behavior of Neural Circuits by Dario Amodei( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Finally, in part IV, we present early progress towards a completely novel recording technology, designed to improve the capabilities and the scale of intracellular recording, eventually enabling its application to network-scale studies. The new device is a customized patch clamp electrode, and opens up the eventual possibility of recording from many cells in a small region of tissue simultaneously as well as performing internal dialysis in tissue. Although not yet fully mature, this device potentially represents a new frontier in intracellular recording
Theoretical physics and the phenomena of life : how much can we calculate? by William S Bialek( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Whether we are looking up at a flock of birds, coherent yet fluid as they move the sky, or peering through a microscope at the intricate dance of cells in a developing embryo, we are struck by the elegance, precision, and complexity of life. Can we imagine theories of these phenomena that are as deep and compelling as we have in the rest of theoretical physics, yet still engage with the myriad details of real biological systems? Professor Bialek believes the answer is yes, and in this lecture he will try to explain the reasons for his optimism using examples from embryonic development to neural coding and computation, and from the structure and dynamics of single protein molecules to the behavior of thousands of birds in a flock. In all these cases, theory is advancing hand in hand with a new generation of experiments."--NIST Public Affairs Office

Quantifying positional information during early embryonic development by Julien Dubuis( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

During the development of multicellular organisms, cells acquire information about their position in the embryo in response to morphogens whose concentrations vary along the anteroposterior axis. In this thesis, we provide an information-theoretic definition of positional information and demonstrate how it can be quantified from experimental data. We start by setting up the mathematical framework and qualitatively discuss which features of expression patterns can contribute to positional information. Then, using the four major gap genes of Drosophila (Hunchback, Kruppel, Giant, and Knirps) as an example, we focus on the experimental standards that need to be met to accurately compute positional information from imunofluorescence stainings. We show that imunofluorescence makes it possible to extract not only very accurate mean profiles but also statistical noise and noise correlations from gene expression profile distributions. We use this analysis to extract gap gene profile dynamics with 1-2 min precision and to quantify their profile reproducibility. Finally, we describe how to quantify positional information, in bits, from the experimental gap gene profiles previously generated. Our results show that any individual gene carries nearly two bits of information and that, taken together, these four gap genes carry enough information to define a cell's location along the anteroposterior axis of the embryo with an error bar of half the intercellular distance. This precision is nearly constant along the length of the embryo and nearly enough for each cell to have a unique identity. We argue that this constancy is a signature of optimality in the transmission of information from primary morphogen inputs to the output of the gap gene network
