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.
Our paper " Theory of Cytoskeletal Reorganization during Cross-Linker-Mediated Mitotic Spindle Assembly " was published in the May 7, 2019 edition of Biophysical Journal. Our video was highlighted on the front page of the journal's website .
Today the group celebrated four graduating students: Christopher Edelmaier (physics PhD), Nicolas Santander (engineering physics BS), Michael Stefferson (physics PhD) and Garrek Stemo (physics BA magna cum laude). Congratulations!
