Cellular automaton models for collective cell behaviour
Andreas Deutsch

Last modified: 2014-06-09


Cellular automata are introduced as models for collective behaviour in
interacting cell populations.
We focus on mechanisms of collective cell migration, clustering and
invasion and demonstrate how analysis of the models allows for
prediction of emerging properties at the individual cell and the cell
population level. Finally, we discuss applications of the invasion
models to glioma tumours.
