Abstract

How do organisms cope with cellular variability to achieve well-defined morphologies and architectures? We are addressing this question by combining experiments with live plants and analyses of (stochastic) models that integrate cell-cell communication and tissue mechanics. During the talk, I will survey our results concerning plant architecture (phyllotaxis) and organ morphogenesis.
