An explicit spatial model of yeast microcolony growth

Jönsson, Henrik LU and Levchenko, A (2005) In Multiscale Modeling & Simulation 3(2). p.346-361
Abstract
Here we present a single-cell-based model of cell-cell interactions in a growing yeast colony. We examine the influence of multiple factors on the colony morphology and switch to a foraging growth behavior. We find that the cell-growth inhibition by neighboring cells along with polar division growth patterns are the most significant factors driving the exploratory behavior of a colony.
