Self-propelled particles are used to simulate cell aggregates in a model considering homogeneous adhesion forces between cells and using only motility differences as segregation drivers. The tendency of cells to follow their neighbors is also included in the formulation. Three model variants are explored, and the conditions on which motility differences may(More)
Cell migration is essential to cell segregation, playing a central role in tissue formation, wound healing, and tumor evolution. Considering random mixtures of two cell types, it is still not clear which cell characteristics define clustering time scales. The mass of diffusing clusters merging with one another is expected to grow as t^{d/d+2} when the(More)
