Abstract

Compartment boundaries have fascinated biologists for more than 25 years. We now know that these boundaries play important roles in pattern formation, yet how these boundaries are established during development remained a mystery. Here, we describe the exciting progress that has been made recently towards elucidating the mechanisms of boundary formation.
