This finding is crucial for studies of microbes in the wild since the sheer number of different organisms present in nearly...

Cerebral navigation: How do nerve fibers know what direction to grow in?

...rs (axons) that connect to other nerve cells in an intricate network. Growth cones, structures in the tips of growing axons, are responsible for steering axons in the right direction, guided by a complex set of signals from cells they encounter along the way. Some signals lure the axons to extend and grow in a...
