EPJ E Topical Issue on Tissue Mechanics
- Published on 29 November 2022
Guest Editors: Alexandre Kabla, Benoît Ladoux & Jean-Marc Di Meglio
This Topical Issue of EPJ E presents a collection of contributions at the cutting edge of research in tissue mechanics.
The rich variety of subjects - epithelia submitted to different mechanical, geometrical or topological constraints, collective and cellular dynamics in cell clusters and organoids, embryology, theory of active motions mediated by topological defects, new methods of analysis – reflects the current intense activity of the biophysics community in this domain. The guest editors hope that these contributions will build a bridge between these fundamental approaches and will present the impact of physical principles on the regulation of biological tissues.
