3D viscoelastic drag forces contribute to cell shape changes during organogenesis in the zebrafish embryo
TLDR
A fully 3D vertex-like (Voronoi) model for the tissue architecture is developed, and it is demonstrated that the tissue can generate drag forces and drive cell shape changes, suggesting that 3D viscoelastic drag forces could be a generic mechanism for cell shape change in other biological processes.
Configurational fingerprints of multicellular living systems
TLDR
A unified method to quantify the evolution of spatial order across different types of disordered systems, including jammed thermal systems, two-dimensional cell monolayers, three-dimensional epithelial spheroids, and Drosophila embryos is developed.
Spatio-temporal analysis of collective migration in vivo by particle image velocimetry
TLDR
Local velocity fields obtained by PIV proved sensitive to estimate the migration speed and directionality of the pLLP in zebrafish, predicting protoneuromast separation at short time scales, and the PIV approach may be suitable for analysing the dynamics of other in vivo models of collective migration.
Migrating Epithelial Monolayer Flows Like a Maxwell Viscoelastic Liquid.
TLDR
In this experiment, the monolayer behaves as a flowing material with a Weissenberg number close to one which shows that both elastic and viscous effects can have comparable contributions in the process of collective cell migration.
Probing epithelial tissue rheology with a Stokes experiment
TLDR
In this experiment, a monolayer of Madin-Darby Canine Kidney epithelial cells is forced to migrate around a circular obstacle within a long and narrow channel, involving cell shape changes and neighbour rearrangements, and the cell deformation and cell rearrangement rate fields correlate strongly.
The Shape and Function of Solid Fascias Depend on the Presence of Liquid Fascias
TLDR
The article discusses the importance of the fluids (or liquid fascia) in maintaining the shape and function of the human body, as, currently, many texts forget how much body fluids are fundamental for understanding structural dynamics.

Cell volume changes contribute to epithelial morphogenesis in zebrafish Kupffer’s vesicle
TLDR
Results indicate ion flux mediates cell volume changes that contribute to asymmetric cell shape changes in KV, and that these changes in epithelial morphology are separable from lumen-generated forces.
Interplay of cell dynamics and epithelial tension during morphogenesis of the Drosophila pupal wing
TLDR
A continuum mechanical model is presented that quantitatively describes the relationship between epithelial stresses and cell dynamics, and how their interplay reshapes the wing.
Regulated tissue fluidity steers zebrafish body elongation
TLDR
Modeling and additional data analyses suggest that the balance between the coherence and rate of cell flow determines whether body elongation is linear or whether congestion forms within the flow and the body axis becomes contorted.
Mechanics of head fold formation: investigating tissue-level forces during early development
TLDR
The proposed morphogenetic mechanisms provide the main tissue-level forces that drive HF formation, and their numerical predictions agree relatively well with the observed morphology, as well as with the measured stress and strain distributions.
Correlating cell shape and cellular stress in motile confluent tissues
TLDR
This work provides a unifying framework for existing, seemingly distinct notions of stress in tissues and relates stresses to material properties and shows that the temporal correlation function of shear stresses can be used to define an effective tissue viscosity that diverges at the liquid–solid transition.
Flocking transitions in confluent tissues.
TLDR
This model examines a self-propelled Voronoi (SPV) model of confluent tissues with an orientational feedback that aligns a cell's polarization with its local migration velocity and finds that aligning interactions facilitate collective motion and promote solidification.
Kupffer's vesicle is a ciliated organ of asymmetry in the zebrafish embryo that initiates left-right development of the brain, heart and gut
TLDR
The proposed KV is a transient embryonic `organ of asymmetry' that directs LR development by establishing a directional fluid flow and genetic analysis reveals novel roles for the T-box transcription factor no tail and the Nodal signaling pathway as upstream regulators of lrdr1 expression and KV morphogenesis.
