In the dark prison's cell;

In science:

Figure 1 shows an example: a driver cell associated to a CET value labelled with “A”(called “mother cell”) proliferates in an area around it (called “development area”, delimited by a dotted line in the figure).
Epigenetic Tracking, a Method to Generate Arbitrary Shapes By Using Evolutionary-Developmental Techniques
In practise the variable CET holds the position of the driver cell in the driver cell lineage tree: this ensures that the new CET values are all different from the mother’s value and from each other.
Epigenetic Tracking, a Method to Generate Arbitrary Shapes By Using Evolutionary-Developmental Techniques
The solution chosen consists of first removing the cells present in the development area, carrying out the proliferation and finally redeploying the cells removed to the first empty positions available, starting from the position of the mother cell and going outwards.
Epigenetic Tracking, a Method to Generate Arbitrary Shapes By Using Evolutionary-Developmental Techniques
It is important to point out that, when new CET values are generated in the course of a proliferation event, the mother cell does not “know” in advance if these CET values will activate a development operator in the genome: such an operator does not need to be there.
Epigenetic Tracking, a Method to Generate Arbitrary Shapes By Using Evolutionary-Developmental Techniques
The whole construction is continued independently and recursively in both of the sub-cells, in such a way that the respectively new introduced hyperplanes are also cut-off by the boundaries of their mother-cells.
Shape-Driven Nested Markov Tessellations
The restriction to the sets ero(c, r) implies that the splitting hyperplanes have at least distance r − ε to the boundary of their mother cell, which is some kind of hard-core condition added to the construction of STIT tessellations.
Shape-Driven Nested Markov Tessellations
Dixon (1994) points out two problems with Pielou’s test: (i) it fails to identify certain types of segregation (e.g., mother-daughter processes) and (ii) the sampling distribution of cell counts is not appropriate.
New Tests of Spatial Segregation Based on Nearest Neighbor Contingency Tables
More precisely, we first study the difference of the means of the reproduction laws for even and odd mother cells in the GW process.
Asymmetry tests for Bifurcating Auto-Regressive Processes with missing data
Each cell inherits an old end or pole from its mother, and creates a new pole.
Asymmetry tests for Bifurcating Auto-Regressive Processes with missing data
Dixon points out two problems with Pielou’s test of independence: (i) it fails to identify certain types of segregation (e.g., mother-daughter processes) and (ii) the sampling distribution of NNCT cell counts is not appropriate (see Dixon (1994)).
On the Use of Nearest Neighbor Contingency Tables for Testing Spatial Segregation
The process starts with a single mother cell.
The Aldous-Shields model revisited (with application to cellular ageing)
All cells up to generation h from the mother cell follow the usual dynamics of the Aldous-Shields model (with time rescaled by a factor of r), such that cells in generation n proliferate at rate r · c−n .
The Aldous-Shields model revisited (with application to cellular ageing)
If a cell is in generation h + 1 from the mother cell, its telomeres have reached the Hayflick limit and the cell is not able to proliferate any more.
The Aldous-Shields model revisited (with application to cellular ageing)
Note that the hyperplanes are always chopped-off by the boundary of their respective mother cells.
