Abstract: During zebrafish gastrulation, the interplay between patterning events and morphogenesis creates an embryo out of a seemingly unstructured blastula stage embryo, an embryo with distinct polarities along its anterior–posterior, dorsoventral and left–right axes at the end of gastrulation.
Keywords: morphogenesis; patterning
