Most current models for morphogenesis of repeated patterns, such as vertebrate somites, cannot explain the observed degree of constancy for the number of somites in individuals of a given species. This precision requires a mechanism whereby the lengths of somites (i.e. number of cells per somite) must adjust to the overall size of individual embryos, and one which coordinates numbers ofsomites with position in the whole pattern of body parts. A qualitative model is presented that does admit the… CONTINUE READING
