Abstract

The study of amoeboid movement in crawling cells has been a wide topic of interest in the field of cell biology. This project focuses on the development of a computer program that simulates the steps of cell crawling. A statistical analysis of the variables used in the program helps to provide a better understanding of the underlying factors behind amoeboid movement. This provides insight into what accounts for the various shapes and behaviors seen among crawling cells.
