Unraveling tissue interactions coordinating neuromuscular morphogenesis: a journey through serendipity

Posted by on June 20th, 2018

An emerging trend in developmental biology focuses on the role of cell adhesion in modulating tissue morphogenesis. Spectacular advances have shed light on how modulation of adhesion between equivalent cells orchestrates the acquisition of forms. However, how interactions at complex interfaces between distinct neighboring cell types influence tissue growth remains to be elucidated. In a[…]
