Abstract

We present a methodology that combines image and shape analysis techniques with a mathematical formulation that allows us to shed light on the elastomechanics underlying tip growth. The approach is organism neutral and can be applied to a wide range of filamentous organisms, given data of sufficient quality. Here we present images captured from experiment that show branching in plants along with a simple algorithm for segmenting the shape of an emerging branch. We then present a method for indirectly calculating the elastic modulus changes with time during the process of branch creation.
