Cover legend

Pattern arising from the simulation of a dynamic model that recovers relevant aspects of the gene network underlying cell type determination in the epidermis of Arabidopsis thaliana. Color scale indicates intensities of relative levels of activity of two groups of genes that are key for epidermal cell type specification. For further details see the article by Benítez et al. pp. 139-155.
