    Autophagic cell death is dependent on lysosomal membrane permeability through Bax and Bak

    Jason Karch et al.
    Molecular pathways controlling autophagic cell death are regulated at the level of the lysosome through the activity of the pro-death Bcl-2 family member Bax/Bak.

    A minimally sufficient model for rib proximal-distal patterning based on genetic analysis and agent-based simulations

    Jennifer L Fogel et al.
    Specification and expansion during rib development is explained by Agent-Based Modeling while respecting the locality of decision-making that occurs as millions of cells coordinate their behavior to form and refine spatial pattern.

    Control of plant cell fate transitions by transcriptional and hormonal signals

    Christophe Gaillochet et al.
    HEC transcription factors control the timing of cell fate transitions in a dynamic stem cell system, allowing plants to adapt their developmental program to diverse environments.
