Project description:The aim of Embryomics is the morphodynamical ?reconstruction? of the cell lineage tree underlying the processes of animal embryogenesis. The goal will be achieved by developing a set of strategies, methods and algorithms to reconstruct the dynamics of cell divisions and movements from time-lapse series of high-resolution optical sections obtained by multiphoton laser scanning microscopy throughout embryonic development. Additionally to reconstruction of cell population dynamics, such kind of data is highly relevant also in investigation of early steps of cancerogenesis and drug effects in vivo. This highly interdisciplinary project forms the foundation of a new scientific field that we call Embryomics with a reference to Genomics.
