Topological determination of early morphogenesis in Metazoa


This paper presents a topological interpretation of some developmental events through the use of well-known concepts and theorems of combinatorial geometry. The organization of early embryo using a simulation of cleavage considering only blastomere contacts is examined. Each blastomere is modeled as a topological cell and whole embryo—as cell packing.
