Abstract

How signals coordinate and direct chemotaxis is an issue that is actively investigated. A new study shows how the dynamic alteration of chemoattractant flux by chemotaxing cells provides an efficient way to solve complex navigational tasks, including finding the optimal path through a complex maze.
