Data processing and pattern nucleation for the MinD system.


The Min system is an important regulator network involved in E-coli cell division. However, although the effects and chemicals involved in this network are known, there still remain a variety of hypotheses about the exact reactions and mechanisms involved. Recent experimental work by Vecchiarelli et al. has demonstrated a large variety of reaction-diffusion induced patterns on a 2d membrane. In this talk I discuss some data processing on Vecchiarelli's data, and initial forays into the "nucleation question"' (that is, how the particular patterns observed appear from an initially "Homogeneous" membrane).
