About these proceedings


Pattern Formation in Morphogenesis is a rich source of interesting and challenging mathematical problems. The volume offers an interdisciplinary interaction space between biologists working in this field and mathematicians, who may propose solutions to the problems put forward by biologists. The main goal is to facilitate the process of cultivating a mutual recognition of the complementary skills between biologists and mathematicians, to the point where the resulting synergy generates new and novel discoveries in the field of Developmental Biology.

Lastly, the volume shows how a combination of new discoveries in developmental biology and associated mathematical modeling and computational techniques has stimulated or may stimulate relevant advances in the field.
