    Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York, NY 10032, USA
    Cell 144:414-26. 2011
    ..This model quantitatively predicts division-axis orientation probability for a wide variety of cell shapes, even in multicellular contexts, and estimates scaling exponents for length-dependent microtubule forces...
