Cell movement is vital for shaping an embryo, wiring up the brain, and in adult life, for healing wounds and fighting infection. In cancer, it is the cause of spread of disease to new sites. Yet cell movement is best studied in the amoebae of Dictyostelium. These cells use chemotaxis to hunt their bacterial prey and, in the social phase of their life, to find one another and build a multi-cellular entity.
