An Agent-based Model for the Pattern Formation in Drosophila Melanogaster


Sara Montagna, Nicola Donati, Andrea Omicini

The hierarchical organisation of biological systems plays a crucial role in the pattern formation of gene expression resulting from the morphogenetic processes.
Being able to reproduce the systems dynamics at different levels of such a hierarchy might be very useful for studying such a complex phenomenon of self-organisation.
In this paper we propose the adoption of the agent-based model as an approach capable of capture multi-level dynamics.
We then realise an agent-based model of ~Drosophila Melanogaster~ morphogenesis demonstrating its capability of reproducing the expression pattern of the embryo.
