|Abstract:||How does the clockwise motion of tens of monocilia drive a leftward flow in the node? And, as the observed flow is leftward, how is the fluid recirculating within the node, as it must, because the node is a closed structure How does the nodal flow lead to left-right symmetry breaking in the embryo? These questions are within the realm of fluid physics, whose application to the problem of left-right symmetry breaking in vertebrates has led to important advances in the field.|
