Where does a cell put it’s resources?

CMCI participant and Department of Physics faculty member Andreas Vasdekis, and his research colleagues Hamdah Alanazi, Amrah Canul and Christopher Williams published a study in the journal Nature Communications. They introduce a new imaging technique to record how a single cell allocates its resources between the production of chemicals and cell growth. These measurements have only been possible on groups of cells, resulting in an average and will be useful in developing biotechnologies and tracking human health.
