E. coli in Motion (Biological and Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering)The subject the physiology physics biochemistry and genetics largely from first principles It is all about a small but remarkably sophisticated friend who lives in your gutTopics discussed but remarkably sophisticated friend who lives in your gutTopics discussed does E coli move aboutHow do cells decide whether life is getting better or worseWhat is the machinery that makes this behavior possibleHow *is the construction of this machinery programmedhow does *the construction of this machinery programmedHow does machinery workWhat remains to be discover. By a reversible rotary engine As Microscopic Organism Immersed In An Aueous Environment It a microscopic organism immersed in an aueous environment it mastered physical constraints utterly different from any that we know devising sensors comparators and motors on the nanometer scaleThis cross disciplinary monograph describes these feats in a manner accessible to scientists engineers and others not trained in microbiology who would like to learn about living machines It treats the history of.
