A Demarez, M Primet, F Taddei, A B Lindner, L Moisan,
Paris Descartes University,
To reduce costly human post-processing in the image analysis of bacterial micro-colony movies, we propose an automatic algorithm, based on cell shape priors andmotion likelihood, that solves segmentation and tracking issues simultaneously.

The abstract describes my research in simulating how endothelial cells change their shape in response to a mechanical signal.
18:30 20:00 Sponsors’ Reception and Poster Session1 - Synthetic BiologyP1.01Riboswitch Development: Design of in Vivo Circuits
N Kelley-Loughnane, S Harbaugh, Y Chushak, M O Stone,
 Applied Biotechnology Branch, Human Effectiveness Directorate, Air Force,
Bacterial cells expressing the riboswitch containing a theophylline aptamer domainupstream of TEV protease and FRET fusion protein showed a marked opticaldifference and in silico studies revealed mutant riboswitches that permit novel ligand
P1.02The E. coli Integrated Network and the Self Contained Regulatory Loops
H Ma, I Goryanin,
University of Edinburgh,
We reconstructed an integrated network of E. coli which includes different types of cellular interactions. Based on it, we introduced the concept of self contained loopand studied the dynamic behaviour of such loops.
P1.03Data Integration to Constrain Computational Modelling in Synthetic Biology
J S Hallinan, M Pocock, A Wipat,
Newcastle University,
This paper describes describes ongoing work using data integration andevolutionary computation for designing and modelling genetic circuits. The aim is toproduce designs which are biologically plausible enough to be useful in syntheticbiology.
P1.04Self-Assembly of Protein Amyloid
C F Lee,
Oxford University,
This work studies the thermodynamical properties of protein amyloid self-assemblyand the mechanical properties of amyloid fibrils.
P1.05An RNAi-Enhanced Logic Circuit: Cancer-Specific Detection and Destruction
A Swaminathan, J Monk, P Cowgill, R Weiss, P Purnick, P Guye,
We developed an RNAi based logic circuit that detects cancer by evaluating internalcell state through mRNA expression patterns. The circuit controls translation of apro-apoptotic factor, allowing targeted destruction specific to cancer cells.
