Self-organising system enables motile cells to form complex search pattern

Researchers at the Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Excellence at Münster University have discovered that curvatures of cell membranes trigger a self-organising system. As a result, cells can move in the same direction over a longer distance, forming search patterns. The study has been published in the journal “Nature Physics”.
