01/2006 - 12/2007

The main objective of this project is the construction and quantitative analysis of mathematical models describing the stages of development towards a three-dimensional fruiting body starting from individual cells. Model predictions will be validated in experiments with aggregates of myxobacteria. A particular goal is to explore how non-diffusible morphogens induce and organize collective cell movements.
