Validating a Dual-Threshold Peak Detection for Calcium Signals Around Laser-Induced Epithelial Wounds
A comparison between an automated method of collection calcium peaks to a manual version to determine the accuracy of the automated system and gain insight into the role of calcium during the wound healing process.
Laser ablation is used to determine how embryonic wounds affect the morphogenesis of Drosophilia.
Cell Shape Changes During Drosophila Germ Band Retraction: To-wards Model Validation by Experimental Comparison
This project seeks to experimentally validate simulated predictions of forces in a Drosophila embryo during germ band retraction.
