Spatiotemporal behaviour of stochastic and continuum models for biological signalling on stationary and growing domains

Abstract:

One of the main challenges in developmental biology is elucidating the mechanisms underlying the formation and maintenance of complex spatial and temporal structures. This thesis aims to explore two different and yet complementary approaches to address this challenge.

Firstly, we investigate a number of specific developmental systems in order to suggest mechanisms underlying their observed biological behaviour. Critically, we show that, without modifications, standard mathematical f...
