Quantitative analysis of community morphologies from a representative simulation.

Using computational image processing at each time point, we quantified the number of fingers and their ramp time, size, and speed. The inset shows the cells (orange), cell front morphologies at evenly-spaced time points (blue contours), the group center positions over time (green lines), and the EPS field at the final time point (grayscale). These data provide a set of quantitative metrics for mapping model parameters to community behaviors.
