  • Cells can migrate individually or collectively. Collective movement is common during normal development and is also a characteristic of some cancers. This review discusses recent insights into features that are unique to collective cell migration, as well as properties that emerge from these features. The first feature is that cells of the collective affect each other through adhesion, force‐dependent and signalling interactions. The second feature is that cells of the collective differ from… CONTINUE READING
