    A transcriptomics resource reveals a transcriptional transition during ordered sarcomere morphogenesis in flight muscle

    Maria L Spletter et al.
    A developmental transcriptomics resource from Drosophila flight muscles quantifies the transcriptional dynamics during muscle morphogenesis and identifies three ordered phases of sarcomere morphogenesis.

    Design of biochemical pattern forming systems from minimal motifs

    Philipp Glock et al.
    Theoretical analysis and in vitro reconstitution of a biological reaction-diffusion system identify key functional motifs as well as underlying principles and enable rebuilding pattern formation in a modular fashion.

    MreB filaments align along greatest principal membrane curvature to orient cell wall synthesis

    Saman Hussain et al.
    MreB filaments bind, orient, and move along the direction of greatest membrane curvature, thus orienting the insertion of new glycan strands around the cell circumference in a manner that may help establish and maintain rod shape.

    Assembly and positioning of actomyosin rings by contractility and planar cell polarity

    Ivonne M Sehring et al.
    Contractility wins over the polarity pathway in a tug-of-war to position a cytokinesis-like actomyosin ring at the equator of notochord cells.

    Zebrafish embryonic explants undergo genetically encoded self-assembly

    Alexandra Schauer et al.
    Blastoderm tissue organization and patterning in zebrafish explants is driven by a genetically encoded and controlled self-assembly mechanism, rather than a bonafide self-organization mechanism.

    Competition between Tropomyosin, Fimbrin, and ADF/Cofilin drives their sorting to distinct actin filament networks

    Jenna R Christensen et al.
    Both cooperative and competitive associations of actin binding proteins with actin filaments help drive the self-organization of functionally diverse F-actin networks in fission yeast.

    Cytokinesis in vertebrate cells initiates by contraction of an equatorial actomyosin network composed of randomly oriented filaments

    Felix Spira et al.
    Asymmetric tension increase along the cell equator promotes self-organization of actomyosin into a partially aligned network during cytokinetic cleavage furrow ingression of vertebrate cells.

    Spatiotemporal mosaic self-patterning of pluripotent stem cells using CRISPR interference

    Ashley RG Libby et al.
    Dynamic control of intrinsic pluripotent multicellular self-organization to yield robust symmetry breaking patterns that recapitulate morphogenic processes associated with developmental events.

    Carboxysomes: How bacteria arrange their organelles

    Emilia Mauriello
    The structures responsible for photosynthesis in bacteria use the nucleoid and two unique proteins as a scaffold to position themselves.
