Walled cells, such as those of plant, fungal and bacterial species, need to remodel their wall to establish and change their shape during growth. Using budding yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) as model system, we are currently studying how the mechanics of the cell wall and the intracellular processes in charge of building the wall interplay to shape the cell. This project is a collaboration between the Campàs lab and the groups of Linda Petzold and Tau-Mu Yi at UCSB.
