3D Reconstruction of the Developing Drosophila Wing Disc

Project Leaders: Dr. David Breen (CCI), Dr. Frank Julicher (Max Planck Institute) and Dr. Christian Dahmann (Dresden University of Technology)

About The Project

Quantifying and visualizing the shape of developing biological tissues provide information about the morphogenetic processes in multicellular organisms. We have developed a set of techniques that generates 3D volumetric surface models of epithelial tissues, as well as geometric descriptions of the tissues' individual cells in order to better understand the mechanisms that guide tissues into their final shape.
