Free vibration analysis of microtubules (MTs) is presented based on the Euler-Bernoulli
beam theory. The size eect is taken into consideration using the Eringen's non-local elasticity theory.
The governing dierential equations for MT vibrations are being solved using the Dierential Quadrature
(DQ) method. Numerical results are presented to show the eect of nonlocal behavior on the frequencies
of MTs. It is hoped that the results in the manuscript may present a benchmark in the study of vibration
