Biophysics of morphogenesis

Biophysics of morphogenesis

Our group is interested in understanding the mechanisms at the origin of force generation, coordination and regulation in biological tissues during animal development. Our group use an interdisciplinary approach, combining expertise in Drosophila genetics and molecular biology with high-resolution live imaging, biophysical analysis and modelling, with the aim of building a quantitative description of the mechano-chemical properties of the morphogenetic processes occurring during   Drosophila Melanogaster embryogenesis.
