comment Impact of Alan Turing's approach to morphogenesis
Thanks. It's not my field of biology (so I'm not an expert) but the authors studied the ridges that form on the roof of mouse mouths. They manipulated the signaling molecules that induce their formation and observed changes in line with Turing's theory. Of course, this doesn't preclude other mechanisms from occurring, but supports that of Turing.
