Preprint with Sander's last postdoc work from his time in the lab of Christine Jacobs-Wagner is out. We examined the interplay between cell morphology, growth and cell cycle events in E. coli, and identify several simple systems-level relations that help us understand how robustness in the cell cycle control of E. coli emerges. Available here!
