Abstract The generation of directed movement of cellular components frequently requires the rectification of Brownian motion. In this talk, we discuss mathematical models that track bias generation by nano machine constructs that operate during cell division. The efficient operation of these dynamic constructs requires specific interactions with dynamic bio polymers. We use first passage techniques to derive mesoscale properties for these motor constructs using microscale rates and reactions.
