Kinesins are an ancient superfamily of microtubule dependent motors. They participate in an extensive and diverse list of essential cellular functions, including mitosis, cytokinesis, cell polarization, cell elongation, flagellar development, and intracellular transport. Based on phylogenetic relationships, the kinesin superfamily has been subdivided into(More)
Fluorescence Recovery After Photobleaching (FRAP) is a commonly used technique for quantifying the movement of small biological systems. To aid in the evaluation of experimentally produced data, we used the parallel processing power offered by Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) to accelerate a computational simulation of the process. We find that the parallel(More)
Understanding plant growth and development is essential to develop the future technologies necessary to meet the anticipated needs of a growing world population. Because plant growth is a manifestation of cellular growth, it is of prime importance to develop a mechanistic understanding of plant cell growth. Transport of cellular cargo, such as proteins, in(More)
