Switch and template pattern formation in a discrete reaction-diffusion system inspired by the Drosophila eye.

Abstract

We examine a spatially discrete reaction-diffusion model based on the interactions that create a periodic pattern in the Drosophila eye imaginal disc. This model is known to be capable of generating a regular hexagonal pattern of gene expression behind a moving front, as observed in the fly system. In order to better understand the novel "switch and… (More)
