A Proposed Mechanochemical Process for Drosophila Dorsal Closure


In this talk, I will give an overview of the Drosophila Dorsal Closure phenomenon in which a developing embryo is able to close an opening in the epidermis. I will present recent experimental work and prior modelling efforts. Both of these will inform the model that I am developing which proposes a biochemical signal coupled to tissue dynamics to successfully complete the process. This talk will emphasize the work in progress nature of the seminar.
