On growth and form: Control of cell morphogenesis in fission yeast

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

25 Scopus citations


In the past year, we have gained considerable insight into the process of cell morphogenesis and the establishment of positional information in fission yeast. The highlights include a better understanding of the role of the microtubule cytoskeleton in the control of cell shape, as well as the identification of novel genes essential for the establishment of cell polarity and for the positioning of the site of cell division.
