We are happy to share that 3 pre-prints reporting exciting new results by the FOR2581 members are now available:
Our joint effort to develop a method to segment plant cells in tissue are paying off. The combined use of neural networks and graph partitioning algorithms deliver accurate, efficient and versatile results!

A therotical work from the Alim (and Maizel) labs that compares a model accounting for a tissue-wide mechanical integration to a model where mechanical stresses are averaged out across the tissue. They show that only tissue-wide mechanical coupling leads to focused auxin spots.

The Greb lab, in collaboration with the Merks (Leiden NL) used modelling to shows that a limited number of factors is sufficient to create a stable bidirectional tissue production in the radially expanding hypocotyl.
