This two day meeting brings together scientists working at the interface of genetics, imaging, cell biology, biophysics and computational biology to unravel the mechanisms underlying shape generation from the subcellular to the tissue scale.
Topics include cytoskeleton dynamics, cell polarity, growth and deformation of cell sheets and formation of primordia and appendages.
The meeting will highlight unifying principles by ranging over microbial, plant and animal systems.
