Article Title: Morphogenesis in Kyoto: A confluence of cell and developmental biology
Abstract: Understanding morphogenesis is the ultimate multidisciplinary (ad)venture. Three-dimensional tissues are generated from the actions of genes, biochemical pathways, and cells that form multicellular networks and interact with their biomechanical environment. A comprehensive explanation of morphogenetic processes must encompass these different levels of analysis. A recent meeting in Kyoto on "Building the Body Plan: How Cell Adhesion, Signaling, and Cytoskeletal Regulation Shape Morphogenesis" highlighted recent advances in tackling this challenging problem. © 2010 by The American Society for Cell Biology.
