Topology and Cell Organ Shapes

Topology is an abstract mathematical exercise that deals with the possible shapes and surfaces of an endlessly/infinitely elastic body. Most cells are plastic and elastic to a great extent. An abstract activity like topology finds its application in understanding the shapes and forms cells acquire.

The probable shapes and forms under different circumstances are some of the questions this interaction of topology and biology can answer. Also, what are the probabilities in shapes if certain circumstances are changed in a certain direction is another exercise in abstract speculation-having bearing on space biology. Why is a root tip tapering in shape? Why a shoot apex is like the way it is? Or what are the possible laminal shapes?
