Embryonic Cleavage Modeling as a computational approach to Sphere Packing Problem

Luca Zammataro, Guido Serini, Federico Bussolino, Todd Rowland


Embryonic cleavage depends on the distribution in the cytosol of molecular signals
that influence mitotic spindle positioning. By implementing the New Kind of Science
(NKS) theory in which a simple rule can evolve with a complex overall behavior,
here we propose a new theoretical approach that is capable of modeling the
mechanisms of early embryonic cleavage dynamics. Finally, we present evidence of a strong similarity between Kepler's Sphere Packing Problem and embryonic cleavage, which thus represents a prominent example of natural computing.
