Evolutionary Tradeoffs between Economy and Effectiveness in Biological Homeostasis Systems

Evolutionary Tradeoffs between Economy and Effectiveness in Biological Homeostasis Systems | great4home | Scoop.it

Biological regulatory systems face a fundamental tradeoff: they must be effective but at the same time also economical. For example, regulatory systems that are designed to repair damage must be effective in reducing damage, but economical in not making too many repair proteins because making excessive proteins carries a fitness cost to the cell, called protein burden. In order to see how biological systems compromise between the two tasks of effectiveness and economy, we applied an approach from economics and engineering called Pareto optimality. This approach allows calculating the best-compromise systems that optimally combine the two tasks. We used a simple and general model for regulation, known as integral feedback, and showed that best-compromise systems have particular combinations of biochemical parameters that control the response rate and basal level. We find that the optimal systems fall on a curve in parameter space. Due to this feature, even if one is able to measure only a small fraction of the system's parameters, one can infer the rest. We applied this approach to estimate parameters in three biological systems: response to heat shock and response to DNA damage in bacteria, and calcium homeostasis in mammals.

Which Science is the Most Basic?

Physics might be considered the most fundamental of all sciences, for all other sciences derive from basic principles of forces, motion, electromagnetism and... thermodynamics. And yet, physical laws are mathematical  models of the world. But mathematics itself is abstract, deriving from constructs of philosophy...

Kleinspiration: 5 Creative Apps to Connect with Parents from your Classroom!

Kleinspiration: 5 Creative Apps to Connect with Parents from your Classroom! | great4home | Scoop.it

"Having a positive relationship with the parents of your students can help your year get off to a great start. I've found that parents often just want to feel connected and involved. Many potential issues can be resolved when they feel like they understand what is going on inside the classroom. As a parent, I know that my husband and I often feel the most uneasy when we don't know when an event is happening or how to help with an assignment. Therefore, as a teacher, I've searched for and tried out numerous tools to help be more proactive in the classroom to solve any issues before they evolve into problems. The feedback I've received from families has been overwhelmingly positive.  "

New Context Search Engine For Twitter To Get The Most Relevant Topics, People And Content: Tame

New Context Search Engine For Twitter To Get The Most Relevant Topics, People And Content: Tame | great4home | Scoop.it

From Official Website:
"Tame analyzes the last 24 hours of your timeline and crunches it down to a top 10 overview of the most relevant hashtags, users and links. Then you can use Tame like a search engine—and get the most relevant topics, people and content.

How does Tame work?
Check out this detailed presentation on Slideshare:
http://www.slideshare.net/Tame_it/tame-product-guideen

Use cases:
- Get a quick overview of your Twitter timeline;
- Keep up with topics you care about;
- Find specific hashtags on certain topics;
- Find opinion leaders and key communicators;
- Keep up with your constituency;
- Take Tame with you..."

From review article on TechCrunch:
"Tame is described as a "context search engine" for Twitter, the mobile and tablet-friendly web app analyses content from your Twitter followers or based on a specific search to algorithmically surface the top hashtags, the Twitter users most mentioned, and the top links shared over the past 24 hours. The idea is to give you an at-a-glance overview of content populated on Twitter via your own Twitter feed or topics that you explicitly wish to delve into, without having to do much upfront work.

In practice, Tame appears to work quite well out the gate. The UI offers a simple three column view consisting of Links, Topics, and People. These are either based on your Twitter timeline — the users you follow — or specific searches that you enter. A slider lets you adjust the time span from 1-24 hours. Clicking on a link, topic or person opens up a panel displaying the originating tweet (or tweets)..."

Sensory Information and Encounter Rates of Interacting Species

Sensory Information and Encounter Rates of Interacting Species | great4home | Scoop.it

Most motile organisms use sensory cues when searching for resources, mates, or prey. The searcher measures sensory data and adjusts its search behavior based on those data. Yet, classical models of species encounter rates assume that searchers move independently of their targets. This assumption leads to the familiar mass action-like encounter rate kinetics typically used in modeling species interactions. Here we show that this common approach can mischaracterize encounter rate kinetics if searchers use sensory information to search actively for targets. We use the example of predator-prey interactions to illustrate that predators capable of long-distance directional sensing can encounter prey at a rate proportional to prey density to the power (where is the dimension of the environment) when prey density is low. Similar anomalous encounter rate functions emerge even when predators pursue prey using only noisy, directionless signals. Thus, in both the high-information extreme of long-distance directional sensing, and the low-information extreme of noisy non-directional sensing, encounter rate kinetics differ qualitatively from those derived by classic theory of species interactions. Using a standard model of predator-prey population dynamics, we show that the new encounter rate kinetics derived here can change the outcome of species interactions. Our results demonstrate how the use of sensory information can alter the rates and outcomes of physical interactions in biological systems.
