Spatial pattern formation in chemical and biological systems

Abstract:

One of the central issues in developmental biology is the formation of spatial pattern in the embryo. A number of theories have been proposed to account for this phenomenon. The most widely studied is reaction diffusion theory, which proposes that a chemical pre-pattern is first set up due to a system of reacting and diffusing chemicals, and cells respond to this pre-pattern by differentiating accordingly. Such patterns, known as Turing structures, were first identified in chemical systems on...
