Title: Modeling Tissue Dynamics
Authors: Javier Buceta, Oriol Canela Xandri, Jaume Casademunt, and Francesc Sagu├ęs
Abstract:Tissue dynamics and growth illustrates how coherent collective behavior develops from the interaction of individual units (cells). Importantly, the emergence of complexity in this context relies on the crosstalk of a hierarchy of spatiotemporal scales, from molecules to cells and to tissues (and back) that ultimately determine the biological function. In this talk I'll review recent work performed in our group in this field including different modeling approaches. In particular I'll show how these formalisms can be applied to understand and predict the behavior of real tissues in the context of embryo development.
