Abstract
During embryo morphogenesis, cells in flat epithelia undergo exchange of neighbours due to intercalation or proliferation events. These intercalations have been well studied in vivo, for instance during Drosophila germ-band extension or wound healing. The three-dimensional character oif these intercalation has been though far less studied. lndeed, apical and basal surface may intercalate differently and at different times. with no apparent mechanical preference. We here use a three-dimensional v...
