Why Some Scientists Never Give Up
by Abby Vogel, Georgia Institute of Technology

Many researchers begin modeling biological systems with simple organisms, such as bacteria, that are easy to culture, manipulate genetically, maintain under controlled conditions and examine in the laboratory. Such microorganisms hint at functionality in larger organisms yet are less complex. Georgia Tech biomedical engineer Eberhard Voit, in collaboration with Helena Santos, a professor at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa in Portugal, showed that high-precision, dynamic experimental data can be combined with nonlinear mathematical modeling to characterize mechanisms in the bacterium Lactococcus lactis.
