Paper on a biomechanical model of GBR published in Biophys. J.
June 4, 2019
Research led by postdoc Ty McCleery is published today in Biophysical Journal. This paper details a cell-level finite-element model that captures the biomechanics of germband retraction (GBR) – a developmental stage that occurs during fruit fly embryogenesis. Check out the video abstract below.
