      Imaging morphogenesis, in Xenopus with Quantum Dot nanocrystals 

      Stylianou, Panayiota; Skourides, Paris A. (2009)
      Mesoderm migration is a well studied morphogenetic movement that takes place during Xenopus gastrulation. The study of mesoderm migration and other morphogenetic movements has been primarily based on in vitro assays due ...
