Subcellular Min Oscillation



How do bacteria find their midpoint in order to divide there? For E. coli, they generate a subcellular oscillation of MinD and MinE to suppress division near the cell poles. We were involved in the first generation of model development for this system including stochastic effects, and we also collaborated with Prof. Manfred Jericho to experimentally study this system.
