The mating pathway in yeast serves as a model signal transduction system for higher Eukaryotes. I am using a microfluidic platform developed in our lab to study this system at a single cell resolution and at high throughput (thousands of cells per experiment). More specifically we would like to gain more quantitative understanding of 1) lineage effects on mating response and 2) the coupling between the cell cycle and the pathway. We will be using mathematical models in conjunction with the high throughput and high time resolution data produced on these microfluidic devices.
