How cells perceive their environment
Bastiaens, Philippe; Krämer, Astrid
SummaryDo cells have ‚sensory organs’ that enable them to perceive their cellular environment? Using experimental and theoretical approaches, the Department of Systemic Cell Biology investigates how cells perceive their complex environment and adapt to its changes. Our research reveals the dynamic characteristics of the protein networks involved and allows us to identify the principles that govern the setup of these perceiver networks.
