New manuscript published

Our preprint on Modelling the auxin dynamics and mechanics of lateral root initiation has now been published in Biophysical Journal.

We show that the growth of pericycle cells is initially limited by the endodermis, resulting in a modest initial growth. However, this modest growth is sufficient to redirect auxin to the overlying endodermis, which then actively accommodates the growth, allowing for the subsequent development of the lateral root.
