The origin of multicellular organisms and the mechanism of development in cell societies are studied by choosing a model with intracellular biochemical dynamics allowing for oscillations, cellcell interaction through diffusive chemicals on a two-dimensional grid, and state-dependent cell adhesion. Cells differentiate due to a dynamical instability, as described by our isologous diversification theory. A fixed spatial pattern of differentiated cells emerges, where spatial information is… CONTINUE READING
