Cellular differentiation describes the process by which embryonic cells become different from one another, acquiring distinct identities and specialised functions. These cells are responding to signals that modify the dynamics of the interacting key genes controlling the cell’s state. The arrival of more and better single cell data opens up new opportunities for better understanding of this cellular decision-making. However, to realise these opportunities, new mathematical and statistical tools are needed to characterise the cellular dynamics and to organise, analyse and visualise such data. This workshop aims at reviewing the current work in this area.
Dr G. Dupont: Model of cell fate decision in the early mouse embryo
Dr P. François: Clock, waves, evolution: geometry of vertebrae patterning
Dr M. Saez: Gene-free landscape models for development
Dr E. Siggia: Embryology: Real and Imagined
