New York, NY : Humana Press, [2023]
xiv, 472 pages : illustrations (some color) ; 26 cm.


Summary note
This detailed collection serves as a unique and excellent collection of state-of-the-art methods and protocols to interrogate cell migration in a wide variety of different contexts and model organisms, as well as advanced image analysis and quantitative assessment of a diverse array of parameters related to cell migration. The book focuses on the cell biology of cell migration, developmental model systems to assess cell migration during morphogenesis, cell migration in cancers and the tumor micro-environment, as well as blood vessel formation and interactions. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step and readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and practical, Cell Migration in Three Dimensions provides a solid foundation for scientists of different disciplines to investigate cell migration in biological processes. Chapters 7, 12, 16, 17, 19, 22, and 24 are available open access under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License via link.springer.com.
