Collective dynamics of cell-fate decision in the early embryo — •Jordi Garcia-Ojalvo — Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain
Mammalian organisms exhibit an astonishing ability to self-organize in a highly regulated manner during development from a fertilized egg, even in the presence of perturbations that can affect the early embryo. In this talk I will describe our recent work combining theoretical modeling and experiments on mouse embryos, which has led us to establish a minimal model of cell-fate decision that relies on cell-cell communication, making this problem one of collective decision making with robust dynamics.
