Together with Bjarke Nielsen, Ala Trusina, and Kim Sneppen, I am working on a model of organ growth with the aim of simulating the development of branched structures. As a basis I am taking the model used in this paper:
- Nielsen BF, Nissen SB, Sneppen K, Mathiesen J, Trusina A. Model to Link Cell Shape and Polarity with Organogenesis. iScience. 2020 Feb 21;23(2):100830. doi: 10.1016/j.isci.2020.100830. Epub 2020 Jan 11.
