ONLINE COVER This week features a Research Article describing a mathematical model that explains how errors are minimized in the specification of cells that form sensory bristles on flies. The analysis revealed that accurate selection of bristle-forming sensory organ precursor cells in fruit flies requires cell-autonomous Notch-ligand interactions to prevent inappropriate fate specification in neighboring cells. The cover image shows a fly with extra bristles due to an error in the fate specification of the sensory organ precursor cells.
