Cellular Dynamics Driving Elongation of the Gut.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

During embryonic development, the midgut needs to undergo extensive elongation to form the small intestine. In this issue of Development Cell, Wang et. al. (2018) explore the cell dynamics of this tissue and find that regulated re-integration of cells into the epithelial layer is important for elongation.
