Simulating Min oscillations in E. Coli for varying length of the cell. (A) Geometry and mesh modeling of an E. Coli cell. (B) Temporal average concentration of MinD protein as a function of position along the long axis of the E. Coli cell (top), and the time series plot of the oscillations. (C) Six E. Coli cells of increasing lengths, as specified in the parameter sweep described in the code block above. The color intensity shows the temporal average concentration of MinD protein along the membrane. (D) Parameter sweep shows how the relative concentration of MinD changes as the bacterium grows.
