    • Cooperation and the Fate of Microbial Societies 

      Allen, Benjamin Isaac; Nowak, Martin A. (Public Library of Science, 2013)
      Microorganisms have been cooperating with each other for billions of years: by sharing resources, communicating with each other, and joining together to form biofilms and other large structures. These cooperative behaviors ...
    • A Predictive Model for Yeast Cell Polarization in Pheromone Gradients 

      Muller, Nicolas; Piel, Matthieu; Calvez, Vincent; Voituriez, Raphaël; Gonçalves-Sá, Joana; Guo, Chin-Lin; Jiang, Xingyu; Murray, Andrew; Meunier, Nicolas (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      Budding yeast cells exist in two mating types, a and α, which use peptide pheromones to communicate with each other during mating. Mating depends on the ability of cells to polarize up pheromone gradients, but cells also ...
    • Scarless Gene Tagging with One-Step Transformation and Two-Step Selection in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Schizosaccharomyces pombe 

      Landgraf, Dirk; Huh, Dann; Hallacli, Erinc; Lindquist, Susan (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      Gene tagging with fluorescent proteins is commonly applied to investigate the localization and dynamics of proteins in their cellular environment. Ideally, a fluorescent tag is genetically inserted at the endogenous locus ...
