Synthetic reconstitution of morphogenetic processes in naïve embryonic tissues — Emiliano Izquierdo and •Stefano De Renzis — EMBL-Heidelberg, Germany
Morphogenesis of multicellular organisms is characterized by changes in cell and tissue behaviours that occur at specific space and time in a coordinated manner. This stereotypic and genetically encoded spatio-temporal organization makes it difficult to determine the extent to which individual cell behaviour drive morphological remodelling. In my talk, I will present a novel optogenetic-based synthetic approach that allowed us to reconstitute complex morphogenetic processes in naïve Drosophila embryonic tissues independent of any pre-determined physical and biochemical conditions or other tissue-scale properties that accompany endogenous morphogenetic processes.
