    • Mechanisms of Chemotropism in Fungi: Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a Model 

      Clark-Cotton, Manuella Rossette (2021)
      Budding yeast decode pheromone gradients to locate mating partners, providing a model of chemotropism in fungi. How yeast polarize toward a single partner in crowded environments is unclear. Initially, cells often polarize ...
    • Mechanisms of Gradient Tracking During Yeast Mating 

      Johnson, Jayme M. (2012)
      Many cells are remarkably proficient at tracking even shallow chemical gradients, despite tiny differences in receptor occupancy across the cell. Stochastic receptor-ligand interactions introduce considerable noise ...
