New paper

Hi People:

This was a tough one to get out, but it is now in press. The latest paper in the "in silico" series is now available on the Ecological Modelling web page:


I won't post the details on what this paper has been through, but the keen observers will notice the "battle scars" it bears. In any case, I am excited the paper is out and am now focusing the next paper in the series, focusing on tetracycline resistance in E. coli...

New Applet: DiffusionBias

Hi People: Just a note on a "new arrival" under the Educational Applets section. Check out the new applet "DiffusionBias". It is designed for programmers to see and understand the bias towards areas of lower diffusion caused by the random walk model. Take care, Ferdi.

New web page up!

TADA. I have completed the revamp of my home page. You can see it here at There are two main design ideas that I used. First, there is only one menu at the front page. This is done, because multiple and sub-menus can be confusing. I want the visitor to see an outline of what’s there right away. Second, I make use of several external web sites for hosting content. For example, my videos are at YouTube; my “news” are at Blogspot (here); etc. I hope that this will help me manage the content on the page and increase visibility. The content has also changed. I removed a lot of “old” information, like access to archives of my previous web pages; details of my consulting history; etc. I hope this will help me direct people to the most current information, which is what I want them to see. Of course, I also updated a lot of the information. OK, well that’s it for now… Take care, Ferdi.
