Branching morphogenesis, the construction of branched constructions within the physique, is a key function of animal and plant improvement. This booklet brings jointly, for the 1st time, specialist researchers engaged on quite a few branching platforms to offer a cutting-edge view of the mechanisms that keep an eye on branching morphogenesis. platforms thought of variety from unmarried cells, to blood vessel and drainage duct platforms to whole physique plans, and techniques variety from statement via test to special biophysical modelling. the result's an built-in evaluation of branching.
