Growth response to compression: how conserved rheological properties may set a universal response.
Any cell population growing in confinement can experience a growth-induced compressive stress, from bacteria to animal cells. We observe in the budding yeast S. cerevisiae that growth decreases under ...Read more
Real-time visualization of drug resistance acquisition by horizontal gene transfer reveals a new role for AcrAB-TolC multidrug efflux pump
Drug resistance dissemination by horizontal gene transfer remains poorly understood at the cellular scale. Using live-cell microscopy, we reveal the dynamics of resistance acquisition by transfer of t ...Read more
Illuminating Genome Organization through Integrated Microscopy and Sequencing
In human cells, two meters of DNA sequence are compressed into a nucleus whose linear size is five orders of magnitude smaller. Deciphering how this amazing structural organization is achieved and how ...Read more
