The antero-posterior dispersion of clonally related cells is a prominent feature of axis elongation in vertebrate embryos. Two major models have been proposed: (i) the intercalation of cells by convergent-extension and (ii) the sequential production of the forming axis by stem cells. The relative importance of both of these cell behaviors during the long period of elongation is poorly understood. Here, we use a combination of single cell lineage tracing in the mouse embryo, computer modeling… CONTINUE READING
