Mini system model construction from in vitro experimental data


Pole-to-pole oscillations of Min proteins regulate the site of cell division, in Escherichia coli cells. In solution, atop a supported lipid bilayer, Min proteins form dynamic structures, such as traveling waves and spiral waves, which have been visualized with high resolution. In this talk, I will discuss my current work, building a bottom-up mathematical model from high resolution Min system in vitro experimental data to more comprehensively characterize Min system dynamics.
