Molecular Motors on Microtubules


This project looks at the long-distance transport of endosomes via molecular motors in the hyphae of the fungus Ustilago Maydis . This long-distance transport mechanism is very similar to long-distance transport along the axons and dendrites of neurons and thus by understanding how transport works in Ustilago Maydis we can better understand how transport works in neurons and dendrites. The project involves hypothesizing different systems for motor organization in Ustilago Maydis hyphae and then developing mathematical ODE models based on these systems. Our ODE models can then give us predictions for how different motor populations will be distributed in the hyphae.
