Computational Framework Integrating Cytoskeletal and Adhesion Dynamics for Modeling Cell Motility

Motility is a biological term that refers to a cell’s ability to move. This ability is crucial because it determines the good or bad functioning of the cell. Physiologically, cell migration is paramount in embryogenesis or wound healing. Pathologically, inflammation and cancer cell invasion are examples of cell misbehavior related to the impairment of its normal motile properties.
