Brief Summary: ''Computational automated routines and principal component analysis of the experimentally extracted Mallomonas data created a realistic mathematical model based on the Fibonacci pattern theory. A complete in silico scale case of Mallomonas was reconstructed showing an optimized scale coverage on the cell surface.''
