The bacterial cell cycle: an adder or a sizer?
Pieter Rein ten Wolde
Biochemical Networks, AMOLF, Science Park Amsterdam, the Netherlands
During his PhD under the guidance of professor Daan Frenkel at AMOLF Pieter Rein ten Wolde studied the dynamics of phase transitions, condensation and crystal nucleation. After he obtained his PhD in1998, he went to the University of California at Berkeley to investigate the hydrophobic effect with David Chandler. In 2001, he returned to AMOLF to set up his own group in the field of cellular biophysics. His group combines theoretical techniques from statistical physics with novel simulation techniques to elucidate the design principles of biochemical networks. The group has a special interest in cellular information transmission, force generation and cellular rhythms.
