  3. Optogenetic Regulation and Interrogation of Gene Expression Variability 

    Benzinger, Dirk (2019)
    Gene expression can exhibit substantial cell-to-cell variability, which partly stems from stochasticity inherent to the transcription process. Nevertheless, its precise regulation is crucial for most biological processes as well as in biotechnological applications. Many of the steps involved in transcriptional regulation are highly dynamic. For example, a variety of transcription factors (TFs) exhibit a pulsatile pattern of activity. ...

  4. Automatic Alignment Methods for Visual and Textual Data with Narrative Content 

    Dogan, Pelin (2019)
    Visual and linguistic tools are the most common medium for exchanging information, self-expression, and storytelling since the ancient times. The advancing technology and humanity enriched these media by introducing novel forms such as digital images, digital videos, online books, blogs, etc. which are tremendously increasing in quantity. Today, we are at a point where we see various manifestations of the same story for which joint analysis ...

  5. Optimal Cold-Start Control Strategies for Gasoline Engines 

    Hedinger, Raffael (2019)
    In the first part of this thesis, generally valid rules for optimal control strategies during the catalyst heating phase at a high value of ignition retardation are identified experimentally. To this end, the effects of variations in control strategies are analyzed. Specifically, variations are analyzed in the center of combustion $\theta_{\mathrm{50}}$, in the air-to-fuel ratio $\lambda$ and in maldistributions in both quantities among ...

  6. Rational Surface Nanoengineering for Phase Change and Separation Applications: From Desublimation Control to Sunlight-driven Antifogging 

    Walker, Christopher (2019)
    As the title suggests, my thesis investigates the use of rationally nanoengineered surfaces to control phase changes and phase separation. More precisely I look at the areas of desublimation frosting, sublimation defrosting, fogging, and oil-water separation. Each of these applications lie within the bounds of technologies that will improve our ability to more efficiently use energy and water, the two most important commodities on earth. ...

  9. Fully Wearable Actuated Hand Exoskeleton for Assistance in Daily Life and Therapy 

    Bützer, Tobias (2019)
    Human hands combine unique dexterity and somatosensory abilities which are exceptional in living organisms and not reached in technology. How important hands are for our daily living becomes evident when we temporarily or permanently lose the ability to use them and simple tasks like eating or grooming suddenly require assistance from a third person. Worldwide, far more than 50 million individuals suffer from upper limb impairment following ...

  10. Play Among Books 

    Roman, Miro (2019)
    Architecture and Information, abundance and connectivity, unsettling hierarchies. Clouds, streams, lists, indexes, pixels. What are they about and how do they shape the way we think about the world? How is coding changing the way in which we think about architecture? One way to approach this vast cloud is by thinking of coding as a literacy. Play Among Books wants to offer one fantastic scenario of what such a literacy might be about. ...
