From abstract: "We show, for the first time, that noroviruses can infect and replicate in a physiologically relevant 3-dimensional (3-D), organoid model of human small intestinal epithelium." This was accomplished with rotating wall vessel bioreactors. From paper: "…an in vitro cell culture assay for human noroviruses … is necessary before we can even begin to understand the mechanisms of pathogenesis for this virus."

No abstract available. First paragraph of paper: "This article presents the conception and development of a centrifuge for hypergravity research use. Experiments were recorded via a digital camera and the images acquired were processed for better visualization of the effects of simulated variation of gravitational force on models of living systems and plant germination. Four different test models were used to illustrate the effects of 1.5 Gz and 7.0 Gz on human physiology, including the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems. One experiment was conducted to evaluate plant germination and growth after intermittent hypergravity exposures to 7.0 Gz, which can demonstrate the usefulness of centrifuges on plant development in extra-terrestrial colonies."
