Two coupled predictive in silicio experiments for the detection of a mechanochemical feedback-loop in tissues. a, b Ectopic overexpression of the morphogen of interest leads to an alignment of resulting mechanical patterns relative to the chemical source. c, d An initial external mechanical deformation leads to the alignment of resulting morphogen patterns relative to the mechanical cue. a, c schematic view, b, d simulation results
