    Cadherin preserves cohesion across involuting tissues during C. elegans neurulation

    Kristopher M Barnes et al.
    A coordinated tissue movement during C. elegans central nervous system internalization reveals a novel role for HMR-1/cadherin in maintaining cohesion, and extends the concept of neurulation beyond vertebrates.

    Regulation of cell protrusions by small GTPases during fusion of the neural folds

    Ana Rolo et al.
    The completion of neural tube closure requires small GTPase-regulated membrane protrusions from non-neural ectoderm cells at the tips of the neural folds.

    Large, long range tensile forces drive convergence during Xenopus blastopore closure and body axis elongation

    David R Shook et al.
    Blastopore closure in Xenopus is driven by two morphogenic mechanisms that have strongly context dependent effects on tissue movement and that generate tensile force across tissues: convergent extension, as expected, and, unexpectedly, convergent thickening.

    Theoretical tool bridging cell polarities with development of robust morphologies

    Silas Boye Nissen et al.
    Biological shapes and morphological transitions can emerge from combining directed interactions between cells with apical-basal and planar cell polarity.

    Downregulation of ribosome biogenesis during early forebrain development

    Kevin F Chau et al.
    Unbiased transcriptome analyses reveal that neural progenitor cells downregulate protein biosynthetic machinery during early forebrain development, and this fundamental process matches proteomic changes in the adjacent cerebrospinal fluid and is regulated in part by MYC.

    Engineering induction of singular neural rosette emergence within hPSC-derived tissues

    Gavin T Knight et al.
    A bioengineering approach identifies tissue morphology as an effective variable for controlling the inception of neural organoid morphogenesis via induction of a biomimetic, singular neural rosette tissue cytoarchitecture.

    Dynamic transcriptional signature and cell fate analysis reveals plasticity of individual neural plate border cells

    Daniela Roellig et al.
    The vertebrate neural plate border is comprised of precursors that coexpress multiple lineage markers and small changes in their levels can bias border cell fate.

    Increasing β-catenin/Wnt3A activity levels drive mechanical strain-induced cell cycle progression through mitosis

    Blair W Benham-Pyle et al.
    Mechanicals forces and local (Wnt) signaling can synergize to increase β-catenin signaling and produce unique growth phenotypes.

    Gastrulation: May the force be with you

    Shinuo Weng, John B Wallingford
    Understanding the coordination of the forces generated in embryos by two processes, convergent extension and convergent thickening, is key to understanding how a hollow sphere of cells develops into an elongated embryo.
