Towards understanding the biophysical basis of robust morphogenesis.

Arezki Boudaoud

Reproduction et Développement des Plantes, Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon

Abstract : The two hands of most humans almost superimpose. Similarly, flowers of an individual plant have almost identical shapes and sizes. This robustness is in striking contrast with growth and deformation of cells during organ morphogenesis, which feature considerable variations in space and in time, raising the question of how organs and organisms reach well-defined size and shape. Because heterogeneous growth induces mechanical stress in tissues, we are exploring the biophysical basis of morphogenesis. By combining approaches from developmental biology (molecular genetics, live imaging), and mechanics/physics (mechanical measurements, models), we are unravelling unexpected cellular patterns and behaviours. During this talk, I will discuss some of our recent results and the resulting perspectives, aiming at a general audience.
