Emergence of multicellularity in a model of cell growth, death and aggregation under size-dependent selection

Journal of the Royal Society, Interface

Jan 1, 2015

Salva Duran-Nebreda, Ricard V Solé

Abstract

How multicellular life forms evolved from unicellular ones constitutes a major problem in our understanding of the evolution of our biosphere. A recent set of experiments involving yeast cell populations have shown that selection for faster sedimenting cells leads to the appearance of s...read more

Apoptosis

Apoptosis is a specific process that leads to programmed cell death through the activation of an evolutionary conserved intracellular pathway leading to pathognomic cellular changes distinct from cellular necrosis
