Abstract

In this thesis, we develop a new computational method using Voronoi vertex model and energy to describe the cell-cell interaction among the epithelial tissue. Several studies and simulations will be showed such as equilibrium states, wound closure process, and abnormal growth. We also perform analysis on circular epithelial wound closure process.
