Cell and tissue morphogenesis in gastrulation

We are studying various forms of cell interactions underlying the development of multicellular structures, such as tissues, organs and embryos, using zebrafish gastrulation as an assay system. Gastrulation is the first major morphogenetic process in the development of most metazoan organisms, leading to the formation of the three germ layers – ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm – and the establishment of the embryonic body axis.

Keywords: Tissue mechanics / cell adhesion / cell migration / gastrulation movements / zebrafish
