Title:"Building a virtual Golgi body from a scratch" 

Abstract:
       Despite the recent developments in microscope technology, it is still difficult to observe intracellular structures in detail. In particular, the morphological dynamics of organelles remain elusive.
To overcome this situation, we propose an alternative approach in which we reproduce the dynamics of organelles using computer simulations with physical models. Applying this approach to the Golgi reassembly process in mitotic cells, we reconstructed the three-dimensional morphological dynamics generating the characteristic layered shapes from aggregations of vesicles. We also revealed the self-organizing nature of the process.
