Self-Organizing Mechanics

Plant Development

During plant development, tissues morph into shapes or aquire patterns due to the feedback of tissues-wide mechanical stresses and ensuing biochemical patterns or plant cell growth.

Gut Mechanics

Mechanical contractions along the small intestine, driving food transport along the longest route through our digestive tract, self-organize in response to signals transported within the flow.

Self-Sustained Contractions

Cross-sectional contractions of fluid filled tubes form self-sustained travelling waves, where flow-transported molecules feed back onto contractions.

Nuclei Order

Nuclei on the surface of the fruit fly embryo form ordered patterns and division dynamics due to active mechanics of nuclei embedding.
