During the transition from pre-implantation to early post-implantation the mammalian embryo undergoes major morphogenetic changes, leading to transformation of the blastocyst into the egg-cylinder or bilaminar disk configuration, in mouse or human respectively. We found that integrin 1 is required during this transition, coordinating morphogenesis and promoting survival of the embryo proper. By single cell RNAseq, we also characterised a sequence of events underlying post-implantation development of the human embryo. We identified a group of cells which may act as an evolutionary-conserved anteriorising signalling centre for the establishment of the anterior-posterior axis prior to gastrulation.
