Cell morphogenesis

We use fission yeast and Drosophila embryos as model systems to study how cell type-specific architecture is set up and maintained, in order to provide either robust or dynamic cell shape and consequently cell type-specific function. For this we study the plethora of roles exerted by the actin and microtubule cytoskeletons, which together with associated proteins are the main organisers of cellular content.
