The large spectrum of limb morphologies reflects the wide evolutionary diversification of the basic pentadactyl pattern in tetrapods. In even-toed ungulates (artiodactyls, including cattle), limbs are adapted for running as a consequence of progressive reduction of their distal skeleton to symmetrical and elongated middle digits with hoofed phalanges.

Mathematical Modelling has a long history in developmental biology. Advances in experimental techniques and computational algorithms now permit the development of increasingly more realistic models of organogenesis. In particular, 3D geometries of developing organs have recently become available. In this paper, we show how to use image-based data for(More)
Virtual application appliances (VAA) (i.e., prebuilt virtual machines (VM) for specific scientific applications) are useful mechanisms to deal with the packaging of complex software systems and heterogeneous software environments (e.g., library version conflicts on different clusters and clouds). As an experience paper, we discuss some basic techniques for(More)
One of the major challenges in biology concerns the integration of data across length and time scales into a consistent framework: how do macroscopic properties and functionalities arise from the molecular regulatory networks-and how can they change as a result of mutations? Morphogenesis provides an excellent model system to study how simple molecular(More)
