Turing patterning has had a large impact in systems biology understandings of morphogenesis. The general idea is that Turing mechanisms can be coupled with other mechanisms to build robust patterning methods. So while not too many people would say that an entire mechanism is ONLY due to Turing patterning, a lot of regulatory networks can be understand as ...

Another source of developmental noise is due to diffusion. Diffusive processes are stochastic and induce noise in morphogen gradients and results in the concentration as being "jagged". Recent results have directly measured the noise in morphogen gradients of the developing zebrafish. In fact, when you think about the low copy numbers of transcription ...

When in doubt go back to definitions I say (as I am now). cytoplasmic determinants: regulatory molecules located in specific distributions around egg cytoplasm Induction: process by which the presence of one tissue influences the development of others positional information, signals cells about its relative position to other cells. hox genes ...
