In the developing embryo, tissues differentiate, deform, and move in an orchestrated manner to generate various biological shapes driven by the complex interplay between genetic, epigenetic, and environmental factors. Mechanics plays a key role in regulating and controlling morphogenesis, and quantitative models help us understand how various mechanical forces combine to shape the embryo. Models allow for the quantitative, unbiased testing of physical mechanisms, and when used appropriately,doi:10.1002/bdrc.21013 pmid:22692887 pmcid:PMC3374861 fatcat:5ki7bda4dfgeloyvgsvd3i3uxy
