Title: Modeling of bacterial cell division

Abstract: To divide, bacteria must remodel their wall at the division site. However, how the cell overcomes the internal turgor pressure to reduce its diameter remains unclear. It is debated, whether remodeling alone can drive membrane constriction or if an additional constrictive force is required.
