    Self-organization process in newborn skin organoid formation inspires strategy to restore hair regeneration of adult cells.
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2017 Aug 10. Epub 2017 Aug 10.
    Department of Pathology, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA 90033;
    Organoids made from dissociated progenitor cells undergo tissue-like organization. This in vitro self-organization process is not identical to embryonic organ formation, but it achieves a similar phenotype in vivo. This implies genetic codes do not specify morphology directly; instead, complex tissue architectures may be achieved through several intermediate layers of cross talk between genetic information and biophysical processes.
