Tobacco growing and the sustainable development goals, Malawi

Bull World Health Organ
PMCID: 5418823
PMID: 28479637
DOI: 10.2471/BLT.16.175596

[…] ance One Malawi and Limbe Leaf, respectively. These two companies sell tobacco leaf to British American Tobacco, Imperial Tobacco, Japan Tobacco and Philip Morris International. The ways in which the tactics of such global actors in the tobacco industry influence policy-making in Malawi have been described elsewhere.– There are also allegations of a close relationship between the industry and many […]


Explosive cell lysis as a mechanism for the biogenesis of bacterial membrane vesicles and biofilms

Nat Commun
PMCID: 4834629
PMID: 27075392
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms11220

[…] acFormatics v0.7 (source code available at https://github.com/ithreeMIF/BacFormatics), that we have developed in MATLAB (The MathWorks Inc., Natick, MA, USA). BacFormatics is based on the open-source TACTICS Toolbox. The following image analysis pipeline in BacFormatics was utilized to analyse 16-bit phase-contrast images. Pixel intensities of each image were inverted (I=65,535−I). To segment indi […]


Asymmetric cell division during T cell development controls downstream fate

PMCID: 4576854
PMID: 26370500
DOI: 10.1083/jcb.201502053

[…] division, prompting further efforts to quantify polarity.To quantify the extent of asymmetry of α-Adaptin and Numb during division, we used time-lapse microscopy and a custom image analysis platform, TACTICS (). DN3 thymocytes transduced with Cherry-tagged α-Adaptin and GFP were cultured on OP9-DL1 stromal cells, imaged in cell paddocks (), and subjected to image processing methods that we had pre […]


Normalized Polarization Ratios for the Analysis of Cell Polarity

PLoS One
PMCID: 4070888
PMID: 24963926
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0099885

[…] ever, this labeling was only used to separate between the cells and had no effect on the analysis as the cells were randomly flipped to remove any potential systematic bias. The MATLAB source-code of TACTICS, and the simulations are available online at http://tactics-toolbox.com. […]


Molecular Evidence of Polyandry in the Citrus Mealybug, Planococcus citri (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae)

PLoS One
PMCID: 3700894
PMID: 23844173
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0068241

[…] ver, insecticides are often ineffective due to the peculiar biological characteristics of mealybugs, e.g. cryptic behavior, wax body cover, and overlapping generations [,]. Pheromone-based management tactics, such as mass trapping, mating disruption, and lure and kill, have been considered sustainable and environmentally friendly alternatives [,–]. Nevertheless, the success of pheromone-based cont […]
