New paper: Bayesian gradient sensing

Published on in BIOLOGICAL ALGORITHMS (NEWS)

How can cells best estimate the direction of a concentration gradient from noisy measurements, when the gradient changes in time, say on time-scale τ? Bayes' rule: Average past measurements over a time-span ~√(τ/r), with r being a rate of information gain https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1367-2630/abdb70
