Hierarchical super-structure identified by polarized light microscopy, electron microscopy and nanoindentation: Implications for the limits of biological control over the growth mode of abalone sea shells
Andreas S Schneider, Birgit Heiland, Nicolas J Peter, Christina Guth, Eduard Arzt, Ingrid M Weiss
BMC Biophysics 2012, 5:19 (12 September 2012)
The hierarchical super-structure of abalone mollusc shells can be revealed by conventional light microscopy methods, opening the potential to study shell growth mechanisms in vivo at high resolution.
A Bayesian method for inferring quantitative information from FRET data
Catherine A Lichten, Peter S Swain
BMC Biophysics 2011, 4:10 (9 May 2011)
A new Bayesian algorithm is available for extracting quantitative information on molecular interactions from FRET (Forster resonance energy transfer) data which yields both an estimate of the dissociation constant and the uncertainty associated with that estimate.
