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. These dynamic constructs work during cell division and their efficient operation 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.
