Using optical tweezers to position yeast cells in a microfluidic chamber, we were able to observe sustained oscillations in individual isolated cells. Using a detailed kinetic model for the cellular reactions, we simulated the heterogeneity in the response of the individual cells, assuming small differences in a single internal parameter. By operating at two different flow rates per experiment, we observe four of categories of cell behaviour. The present model (gustavsson4) predicts the steady-state behaviour observed in 25.7% of the cell population.
