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[…]

Cell State Workshop Transitions to Virtual Format

Posted by on January 19th, 2021

In December, The Company of Biologists hosted its first virtual workshop on Cell State Transitions: Approaches, Experimental Systems and Models. Ten early-career researchers were given the opportunity to participate along with several invited senior scientists. Instead of meeting in-person at the Wiston House, we used the Remo platform to convene online, utilizing a virtual stage[…]

From Image to Insight – Morphogenesis Meets Data Science

Posted by on September 26th, 2020

A wave of innovations is advancing data-driven computational analysis and machine learning – time for developmental biologists to hop on the surf board! This post, inspired by our recent data-driven work on lateral line morphogenesis, provides a brief primer on key concepts and terms. written by Jonas Hartmann & Darren Gilmour From machine translation to[…]

July in preprints

Posted by on August 4th, 2020

Welcome to our monthly trawl for developmental biology (and related) preprints.  This month features a host of preprints on human development at the single cell level (perhaps all submitted in time for Development’s September meeting?), plus insights into how butterflies make clear wings and how worms achieve meiosis, and a whole lot more. Preprints hosted[…]
