Department of Molecular Biology, Princeton University, Lewis Thomas Lab, Washington Road, Princeton, NJ 08544, USA
Dev Cell 6:343-55. 2004..These results indicate that spatial patterns of gene expression coordinate planar polarity across a multicellular population through the localized distribution of proteins required for cell movement...

Department of Molecular Biology, Princeton University, Washington Road, Princeton, NJ 08544, USA
Dev Cell 4:6-8. 2003..The resulting detailed analysis of cell behavior will ultimately extend to broader issues, such as, whether morphogenesis can be described as the sum of single-cell events or if unique phenomena emerge at the multicellular level...
