computational morphodynamics

Saturday 22 October 2011

The emerging field of computational morphodynamics aims to understand the changes that occur in space and time during development by combining three technical strategies:
- live imaging to observe development as it happens;
- image processing and analysis to extract quantitative information;
- computational modelling to express and test time-dependent hypotheses.
