Implications of domain growth in morphogenesis

Maini, P. K. and Crampin, E. J. and Madzvamuse, A. and Wathen, A. J. and Thomas, R. D. K. (2003) Implications of domain growth in morphogenesis. In Mathematical Modelling & Computing in Biology and Medicine, Proceedings 5th ECMTB Conference 2002 (ed. V. Cappasso), n/a (n/a). pp. 67-73.



Domain growth can play an important role in pattern formation during early embryonic development. By considering the Turing reaction-diffusion model for pattern formation, we show how growth can influence patterning. We consider how growth affects mode selection and robustness of patterns. Specifically, we investigate ligament patterns in arcoid bivalves.
