Relation: Embryonic Development & Substitution Model Cellular autonomy Neighbor independent substitution system Example: cell growth, cell differentiation Cell signaling relay, cell-cell interaction model neighbor-dependent substitution model Example: cell-cell adhesion, cell sorting, cell migration, cell growth and death Positional information/Morphogenesis field theory Probability substitution model Example: FGF

Summary 1. The substitution system is a suitable tool to enumerate growth process in embryonic development. 2.The substitution system as applied here can simulate real biological process, like cell division and differentiation. 3. Global behavior can be described by probability fields, which can link the molecular- signaling level to the cellular level. 4. Under certain growth probabilities to, the cell motion is still random according to fate map test.
Future Work Find out the suitable growth probability function. Implement the molecular information into the model. Application in other developmental system. Explore random/robustness effects in embryonic development. Explore surface tension constraints using the Cellular Potts model.
