Polarization is an essential behavior of living cells, yet the dynamics of this symmetry-breaking process are not fully understood. We have developed a spatial stochastic model of cellular polarization during mating of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Specifically we investigated the ability of yeast cells to sense a spatial gradient of mating pheromone and respond by forming a […]

Abstract Light is a powerful tool for interrogating and manipulating biological systems, enabling targeted stimulation, sensing, and imaging. Optical methods such as optogenetics have transformed the study of neural circuits by making it possible to control neural activity using light. However, there remains a critical demand in research and medicine for miniaturized high resolution optical […]
