Light-Controlled Cell–Cell Assembly Using Photocaged Oligonucleotides (open access)

Light-Controlled Cell–Cell Assembly Using Photocaged Oligonucleotides

Article asserts that while techniques that allow one to control the arrangement of cells and direct contact between different cell types have been developed that expand upon simple co-culture methods, specific control over heterojunctions that form between cells is not easily accomplished with current methods, such as 3D cell-printing. In this article, DNA-mediated cell interactions are combined with cell-compatible photolithographic approaches to control cell assembly.

Temporal complexity measure of reaction time series: Operational versus event time (open access)

Temporal complexity measure of reaction time series: Operational versus event time

Article describes how detrended fluctuation analysis (DFA) is a well-established method to evaluate scaling indices of time series, which categorize the dynamics of complex systems. The authors propose treating each reaction time as a duration time that changes the representation from operational (trial number) time n to event (temporal) time t, or X(t).

Land Use Simulation of Guangzhou Based on Nighttime Light Data and Planning Policies (open access)

Land Use Simulation of Guangzhou Based on Nighttime Light Data and Planning Policies

This article employs nighttime light (NTL) information as a proxy indicator of gross domestic product(GDP), and a future land use simulation model (FLUS) to simulate the land use patterns in Guangzhou from 2015 to 2018 and 2018 to 2035 by incorporating planning policies. This study demonstrates that NTL is a suitable and feasible proxy indicator of GDP for the land use simulations, providing a scientific basis for the development of urban planning and construction policy.
