Looking at the structure inside cells
How complex and structured is the inside of a cell? It's hard to imagine, but the internal organisation of cells is typically precisely controlled by molecular skeletons and scaffolds, giving cells the shape they need to function. We can discover the 3D org...

Smooth Videos - AKA Correcting NASA
What makes a video look smooth? Your eye is extremely sensitive to problems with videos, and for any video to look smooth it has to have: A high frame rate A steady camera Roughly even brightness each frame Normally these are easy to get. Any modern camera ...

Trypanosome Lego
Trypanosomes and Leishmania are the two tropical parasites that I do most of my research on. These cells seem to have a lot of modularity in controlling their shape, and have quite a lot of flexibility in reshuffling where particular structures (made up of ...

No, but I can send them to you! What is the best way to?

I think the 3D printing tolerance will be too low for the lego-style joins to work; but it would be quite easy to change them to a post/clip style joiner.

Ergodic Analysis
My review paper about ergodic analysis came out on Thursday. Does ergodic analysis sound terrifying? It's actually quite a simple concept; it is a powerful method for extracting information about the dynamics of a cell division cycle from a single snapshot ...

Light-Years of DNA
Light-year, and DNA. Not two scientific terms you expect to see on the same page, but over your lifetime your body will produce around one light-year of DNA! That is about one trillion kilometres. Don't believe me? Let's do some maths: Every cell in your bo...

Forgotten Futures - New York
What if cities looked like this? The 1920s view of cities of the future was glorious; huge buildings towering into the sky, multi-layer roads, rail and pavements, airships and aircraft, and the bold geometry of art deco. Sadly this world never came into exi...

A quality Oxford pub, but with more of a local village feel. Good range of beers and food, for reasonable prices (at least by Oxford standards). Around the major meal times the kitchen is staffed by a quality chef and his food is excellent. Certainly one of the best burgers in Oxford!
