Directional migration: A prototypical cellular control system

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Chemotaxis, the ability to move directionally in response to external chemical gradients, is a process found in many cell types. Individual bacteria and amoebae rely on chemotaxis to hunt for food. In mammalian cells, chemotaxis is crucial during development and as part of the immune system. In this paper we show how control theory can be instrumental towards the understanding of chemotaxis.
