Abstract: 
Intermediate filaments are one of the components of cytoskeletal networks. Intermediate filaments play a crucial role in the cell mechanics. Understanding their assembly dynamics, organization in networks and resulting mechanical properties is essential to elucidate their functions in cells. A combination of mathematical modelling and experimental data is used to investigate the organization of the intermediate filament networks. What contributes to their organization? What process or combination of processes does the organization emerge from? What process dominates?
