  • Description: 2010 Drosophila Image Award

    We have applied quantitative methods to live imaging to understand the mechanisms behind tissue reshaping, using Drosophila embryos as a model (1,2).Live Drosophila embryo filmed during gastrulation, with the apical cell membranes labelled with Green Fluorescent protein and automatically tracked through time. On this movie frame, the multicoloured tracks represent the trajectory of the centre of each cell over the previous 4 minutes.
