The combination of high-speed light sheet microscopy and suitable data analysis facilitates cell-accurate measurements across entire organs and opens the way to systematic, scale-bridging, in vivo studies of organogenesis.
Temperature-dependent fasciation mutants of Arabidopsis unexpectedly connect mitochondrial RNA processing to the control of cell proliferation during lateral root morphogenesis via electron transport chain activity and reactive oxygen species production.
Anarchic, cycling piwi-1+ embryonic cells gives rise to neoblasts, pluripotent stemcells required for development of all organ systems during S. mediterranea embryogenesis, as well as the maintenance andregeneration of tissues during adulthood.
A computational strategy for extracting representative numerical features from 3D microscopy data enables in-depth quantitative analysis of cell and tissue organization through machine learning-driven data integration and context-guided visualization.
In contrast to amniotes, zebrafish (ray-finned fish, teleost) centra are formed from specialised notochord sheath cells, and the segmental patterning of these cells is independent of the segmentation clock.
