Speed of reaction diffusion in embryogenesis.

Abstract:

Reaction diffusion systems have been proposed as mechanisms for patterning during many stages of embryonic development. While much attention has been focused on the study of the steady state patterns formed and the robustness of pattern selection, much less is known about the time scales required for pattern formation. Studies of gradient formation by the diffusion of a single morphogen from a localized source have shown that patterning can occur on realistic time scales over distances of a m...
