Find asymmetric cleavages

This page allows to compare the volumes of sister cells in Ciona intestinalis embryos up to the 44 cell stage. Select the developmental stage of interest, the % of asymmetry (calculated as 1-Vsmall_sister/Vlarge_sister) and upon submission a list of sister pairs satisfying the required asymmetry is obtained. If "asymmetry >0" is selected, the cleavage asymmetry of all sister pairs at the selected stage is displayed in the results page.

The dataset this tool work with is still incomplete and involves a restricted set of developmental stages.
