Candida albicans “on-chip”: Biomechanical approach of morphogenetic plasticity of the yeast C. albicans
Different regions of the body have different physico-chemical characteristics, resulting notably in
various sources of confinement and mechanical stresses that C. albicans cells may experience.
Recently, we have shown that the switch from one morphotype to another one was highly
dependent on mechanics, raising the question of the role of such stresses in promoting or
