Mesoscale cellular processes

This section incorporates all aspects of mesoscale biophysical processes including: analysis of soft condensed matter, polymers, subcellular oscillations, actin cytoskeleton and molecular motors.

  1. Content type: Research article

    Intracellular transport is crucial for many cellular processes where a large fraction of the cargo is transferred by motor-proteins over a network of microtubules. Malfunctions in the transport mechanism under...
