More Drosophila theory on

Last week, I posted an article here that noted the availability of a
theoretical paper by Reinitz et al. on stripe formation in Drosophila
from a developmental perspective.

Now, the archive has a second, related paper:  a pre-print (sans
figures, alas) of an article by Kerszberg and Changeux, scheduled
to appear in PNAS in the next few months, that approaches the same
problem from a genetic perspective.

These two papers are available on via gopher (path
Ecology and Evolution/ Research papers.../ Drosophila.../) or FTP
The README file there reads in part:

This directory contains two new research papers on theoretical models
of stripe formation in early embryo development of Drosophila. 

Positional_Info.*	Reinitz et al. (1992) Model for cooperative
   technical report	control of positional information in Drosophila
   figures included	by bicoid and maternal hunchback.

grad.*			Kerszberg and Changeux (1994) A model for
   PNAS pre-print	reading morphogenetic gradients:  Autocatalysis
   figures missing	and competition at the gene level.

See the individual README files for brief abstracts and other information.
