The cell is a highly organized architecture that, inside the cell, organelles and the cell division plane are positioned in the right place at the right time. Our group is searching for design principles in spatial organization of cell architecture, and analyzing mechanical bases underlying the principles. We are using the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans embryo as a model system. In addition to molecular biology approaches, we use computational approaches such as image processing, quantitative measurement, and computer simulation.
