Localizing Genome Segments and Protein Products of a Multipartite Virus in Host Plant Cells
Authors:  Marie-Stephanie Vernerey, Elodie Pirolles, Stephane Blanc and Anne Sicard, date: 12/05/2019, view: 1288, Q&A: 0
A founding paradigm in virology is that the spatial unit of the viral replication cycle is an individual cell. This concept applied to multipartite viruses–which have a genome composed of two or more nucleic acid segments, each individually ...

Characterization of Biological Motion Using Motion Sensing Superpixels
Authors:  Felix Y. Zhou, Carlos Ruiz-Puig, Richard P. Owen, Michael J. White, Jens Rittscher and Xin Lu, date: 09/20/2019, view: 1642, Q&A: 0
Precise spatiotemporal regulation is the foundation for the healthy development and maintenance of living organisms. All cells must correctly execute their function in the right place at the right time. Cellular motion is thus an important dynamic ...
