I forgot to share this this when it was hot off the press, but last week +David Basanta, +Jacob Scott, +Robert Vander Velde, and I released our latest preprint on the evolutionary games of cancer.

Here we introduce the double goods game for modeling acidity as a public good for all cancer cells, and oxygen from vasculature as a club good for non-glycolytic cancer cells. In this preprint, we focus on the case of linear goods, showing that our game has an internal equilibrium that one might not expect from previous analyses of the games in isolation. The dynamics in this case are (almost) identical to the optional public goods game (with the glycolytic cells as loners, and the slope of the acidity benefit function as their reward). The three possible dynamics regimes also have important consequences for treatment, in particular when it comes to scheduling concerns like timing, duration, and... more »

If you prefer blog posts then this recent post has an overview of much of the content of the paper:

https://egtheory.wordpress.com/2016/07/14/double-goods-dex/

If you still don't feel comfortable citing blog posts in your papers, but wanted to cite some of my work from TheEGG, then look at the appendices of this recent paper. What you want to cite might be there.

For those that prefer arXiv to the bioRxiv: http://arxiv.org/abs/1608.00985

If you have any comments on the work then please let me know. Either in the comments here, on the blog, or through email.___

And here I thought that I was fancy for automating some cell counting. Turns out that a new lab at Imperial College London is automating the whole bench biology pipeline. Will this result in more freedom for graduate students in experimental biology? Or will it just cut into their numbers? Does this mean that soon I might be able to run not only in silico simulations, but also robot-controlled in vitro? /cc +David Basanta, +Andriy Marusyk, +Jacob Scott, +Robert Vander Velde

The latest +2Scientists podcast by your +Pint of Science US friends is on sharks!

Dan Huber has been into sharks since the age of 8. He’s studied them, lived with them and almost lost his head because of them!
 
We talk biomechanics, the dangers of captivity and megalodon. So many questions…so little time. We appreciate you humoring us Dan.
 
Thanks as ever to the New World crew. We’d also like to credit the Wintermitts (who recently disbanded) with the featured track “Sharks” from their album “Oceans” - we just couldn’t resist!___The latest +2Scientists podcast by your +Pint of Science US friends is on sharks!
