This new section considers all aspects of morphogenesis including genetic and molecular basis of morphogenesis, transition from pupae/tadpole to adult - the origin and development of morphological characteristics and structures, cell-cell adhesion, cell shape and size regulation. It also considers manuscripts in mechanobiology - an emerging field of science at the interface of biology and engineering that focuses on how physical forces and changes in the mechanical properties of cells and tissues contribute to development, cell differentiation, collective cell movement, physiology, and disease, both in animals and in plants.
Dynamic conversion of cell sorting patterns in aggregates of embryonic stem cells with differential adhesive affinity
Mammalian early development comprises the proliferation, differentiation, and self-assembly of the embryonic cells. The classic experiment undertaken by Townes and Holtfreter demonstrated the ability of dissoc...
