Engineering morphogenesis using self-organized embodiment

Posted by on January 20th, 2021

During their journey from zygote to adult, embryos experience several symmetry breaking processes. Structures which are not isotropic (equal in all directions) are formed, creating the inside-out axis, forward-backwards axis, etc. Each of these patterns increases the information required to describe a multicellular system. As Maynard Smith put it: sometimes the “extra” information is stamped[…]
