My microtubules article

If you are interested, please take a look at my article about microtubules. These cellular structures are needed for processes as diverse as growth of your nerves, division of your cells, and (if you are a chap) the swimming of your sperm.

In my research I investigate how microtubules drive the growth of nerve cells, and how the behaviour of microtubules is controlled in this process (I touched on this in my last blog post: A neuronal growth cone sets out on its journey).

My article is for the newly launched Fastbleep Biology Notes website; it aims to provide clear, engaging articles written by students, to help other students.
