Mechanisms of chromosome biorientation and bipolar spindle assembly analyzed by computational modeling

June 4, 2019

We develop a computational model of fission-yeast mitosis using a course-grained Brownian Dynamic framework in conjunction with a force-dependent kinetic Monte Carlo algorithm to replicate the biorientation and segregation of chromosomes.

Theory of cytoskeletal reorganization during crosslinker-mediated mitotic spindle assembly

May 7, 2019

We develop a torque-balance model that describes spindle assembly due to dynamic microtubule bundles, spindle-pole bodies, the nuclear envelope, and crosslinkers to predict spindle-assembly dynamics.
