  • Abstract : The ability of a pre-patterned and subsequently activated spontaneous strain field to drive shape transformations has gained increasing appreciation in device design, engineering, and the physics of metric shape-programmability. Many of these ideas may also hold relevance for understanding tissue morphogenesis. We show spatiotemporal patterns of active cell behaviours can be coarse-grained to yield similar spontaneous strain fields, and how topological defects in these fields can organise shape outcomes and provide robustness against natural variability.
