Abstract

Zhou et al. investigate the hypothesis that orientation of mitotic spindles plays a key role in determining organ shape. Unexpectedly, they find that orientated cell divisions are not required for the normal shape of the Drosophila wing and that the absence of oriented divisions can be compensated for by other cellular processes.
