Reaction-Diffusion Dynamics of Complex Petal Pigmentation Patterning in hybrid Mimulus

A fundamental question in developmental biology is how self-organized spatial patterns form in natural systems. In 1952, Turing proposed the reaction-diffusion model, a simple but elegant theoretical mechanism in which two molecules interact and generate periodic pattern spontaneously. Ever since then, this model has helped explained a wide range of biological pattern formation like the…
