How Cells Move and Don't Get Stuck

News

Cell velocity, or how fast a cell moves, is known to depend on how sticky the surface is beneath it, but the precise mechanisms of this relationship have remained elusive for decades. Now, researchers have figured out the precise mechanics and developed a mathematical model capturing the forces involved in cell movement.

Simulating Evolution To Understand Phenotypic Switching

News

Using computer simulations built on reasonable assumptions and conducted under careful control, computational bioscientists can mimic real biological conditions. Starting with the original founding population (ancient phase), they can evolve the population over several thousand generations to develop an intermediate phase, and then evolve that generation another several thousand generations to develop a derived phase.
