SB – PhD Position Statistical Mechanics of Intracellular condensates

SB

Liquid-liquid phase separation has been recently emerged as a new mechanism to create specialized compartments inside cells, from bacteria to single-cellular and multi-cellular eukaryotes, without the need of an enveloping membrane. Although the framework of standard phase separation has been used to explain their formation, in more recent years it has been acknowledged that in (…)
