Structure of Development or Development and Topology of Biological Shapeexemplified on the early embryology in the egg of the nematode C. elegans
The pre-morpho-genetic development of nematode Caenorhabditis elegans in the egg is studied to formulate a base system, in which rules that govern the formation of shape and functions in biological organisms can be defined. The spatial cell positions and the cell movements are subject of analysis by mathematical means, with respect to the determination of biological form and function . The mathematical concepts of Vector space chains, Matrix and Boundary operations are made available for the analysis. The development of one organism can be described in a unique matrix form. The structure of the development of two different organisms can be compared.
