Development of spatial pattern in the early embryo results from the interaction of several processes in a complex hierarchy of mechanisms. Most models for morphogenesis to date have, however, focussed on a particular mechanism. Although such models are capable of capturing some aspects of development they are inconsistent with key experimental observations. Here we consider a two-step hierarchy of patterning mechanisms in which the spatial pattern of a control chemical regulates morphogen diffusivity in an overlaying reaction diffusion system.
