Mathieu Bottier, a postdoctoral fellow in the Dutcher Lab, recently had a paper published in Biophysical Journal. The paper, “How Does Cilium Length Affect Beating?” shows that features of the ciliary waveform were quantified from polynomial curves fitted to the cilium in each image frame, and that periodic beating did not emerge until the cilium reached a critical length between 2 and 4 μm. Susan Dutcher, Ph.D., Professor of Genetics at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, is a senior author on the paper. Congratulations, all!
