Cell Polarity and Chemical Gradient tracking in Yeast

Hosted by:  Dr. Susan Dutcher
In-person only:  Connor Auditorium (FLTC)

Talk abstract: How cells orient polarity in response to chemical gradients is a fundamental but poorly understood process. We use the pheromone-tracking ability of mating yeast as a model to dissect basic principles.
