New paper in Communication Physics: A phase diagram for bacterial swarming

I’m happy to say that the paper “A phase diagram for bacterial swarming” has been published in Communication Physics (https://www.nature.com/articles/s42005-020-0327-1). This paper is the result of ancient long-running research (started in 2015…) and is joint work with Avraham Be’er, Bella Ilkanaiv, Daniel Kearns, Sebastian Heidenreich, Markus Bär and Gil Ariel. In it, we analyze how … More New paper in Communication Physics: A phase diagram for bacterial swarming

A primitive model for genetic recombination

Introduction: I’m taking a class in general genetics at the Technion, and there we learned about genetic recombination, and in particular, homologous chromosome crossover: a phenomenon where chromosomes exchange sections between themselves during meiosis. When this happens, some of the members of the population exhibit “recombinant genomes”, which are different than their parent genomes should … More A primitive model for genetic recombination
