Fluctuations during morphogenesis

Le 1 juin - 11h-23h
Centre de recherche - Paris - Amphithéâtre Marie Curie
Pavillon Curie, 11 rue Pierre & Marie Curie, Paris 5ème
Description

What sets the size and form of living organisms is still, by large, an open question. During this talk, I will illustrate how we are approaching this question by focusing on temporal and spatial fluctuations of tissue mechanics and growth, both experimentally and theoretically. First, I will discuss what sets the directionality of growth at organ scale. Second, I will present predictions that growth has fluctuations at multiple scales and experimental tests of these predictions. Last, I will introduce how we are using microfluidics to investigate variability in morphogenesis between individual plants. Altogether, our work sheds light on the balance between variability and robustness during morphogenesis.
