Supported by DMS-1762063, Joint NSF DMS/NIH NIGMS Initiative to Support Research at the Interface of the Biological and Mathematical Sciences

Subcellular element model of growth of the shoot apical meristem (SAM) of Arabidopsis thaliana

Program Description

The program simulates combined growth of the L1, L2, and deeper L3 layers of the SAM where individual cells are represented as collections of nodes representing subcellular components of cells.

The program creates the following files:

  • Animate is a folder that contains .vtk files for viewing simulations in ParaView.

  • Nematic is a folder that contains individual information for each cell including, cell center and the main axis of elongation of each cell.

A link to download all source code will be available here soon. Until then the code is available from gitHub.
