The behavior of tubular polymersomes is investigated within the framework of the elastic energy model. The transition from a cylindrical tube to a chain of beads connected by small necks is studied in detail. The evolution of a polymersome shape, resulting from a change of the temperature is modeled by the shape transformations caused by a change of the spontaneous curvature. Good agreement between the experiments and the theoretical calculations is found.
