New paper on morphometric analysis of the amphioxus notochord

Our new paper on notochord development in amphioxus has now been published in Development!!!

First-author Toby did some impressive job in segmenting all the cells, giving us a perfect playground to do a thorough morphometric analysis of an in vivo system! That allowed us to investigate the complete range of cell shapes and how it depends on the developmental stage of the tissue. Additionally, by performing a pseudotime analysis, a tool commonly used to study RNAseq data, we could identify developmental gradients in the amphioxus notochord.

It was a lot of fun to work on that project together with Andrews from the group of Elia Benito-Gutiérrez from the Zoology department of Cambridge University.
