Physics-Biology interface seminar: Arezki Boudaoud

Stochasticity and robustness in growth and morphogenesis

Arezki Boudaoud (ENS Lyon)

How do organisms cope with natural variability to achieve well-defined morphologies and architectures? We addressed this question by combining experiments with live plants and analyses of stochastic models that integrate cell-cell communication and tissue mechanics. This led us to counterintuitive results on the role of noise in development, whereby noise is either filtered or enhanced according to the level at which it is acting.
