An Explicit Spatial Model of Yeast Microcolony Growth
Multiscale Modeling and Simulation 3, 346-361 (2005)

Here we present a single cell based model of cell-cell interactions in a growing yeast colony. We examine the influence of multiple factors on the colony morphology and switch to a foraging growth behavior. We find that the cell growth inhibition by neighboring cells along with polar division growth patterns are the most signficant factors driving the exploratory behavior of a colony.
