The MOSAIC team is interested in the morphogenesis of life forms such as plants and animal embryos. We focus on how the biochemical and biophysical processes interact to shape organisms. To address the complexity of the underlying mechanisms and of their interactions, we develop computational models based on 3D imaging of form development. Our aim is to progressively construct an approach inspired from the theory of dynamical systems applied to the development of life forms.
