Cell's Skeleton is Never Still
Computer models developed at Rice University show how microtubules age. The models help explain the dynamic instability seen in microtubules, essential elements in cells' cytoskeletons. Anatoly Kolomeisky, professor of chemistry and of chemical and biomolecular engineering, is quoted. Postdoctoral researcher Xin Li is mentioned.
