Growth and folding in one-layered model tissue sheets are studied in a stochastic, lattice-free single cell model which considers the discrete cellular structure of the tissue, and in a coarse grained analytical approach. The polarity of the one-layered tissue is considered by a bending term. Cell division gives rise to a locally increasing metric. An exponential and a power-law growth regime are identified. In both regimes, folding occurs as soon as the bending contribution becomes too small… CONTINUE READING
