Abstract

At gastrulation, a single layer of cells is converted into an outer ectodermal covering, an inner ectodermal tube, and in triploblastic phyla, a middle mesodermal layer. This morphogenesis is driven by motility and directed by cell interactions, some of which involve adhesion and others that involve information transfer.
