Single-cell approaches for understanding morphogenesis using Computational Morphodynamics
In multicellular organisms cells grow, divide and adopt different fates, resulting in tissues and organs with specific functions. In recent years, a number of studies have brought quantitative knowledge about how these processes are orchestrated, shed-ding new light on cells as active and central players in morphogenesis. We explore recent advances in understanding plant morphogenesis from a quantitative perspective, defining the re-search field of Computational Morphodynamics. The focus is on studies combining theoretical and experimental approaches integrating hypotheses of how molecular and mechanical regulation at the cellular level lead to tissue behaviour. Finally, we dis-cuss some of the main challenges for future work.
