Abstract
Cell migration occurs in many different contexts. Amoebae and other isolated cells migrate in culture. In animals, 'professional' migratory cells of the immune system constantly survey the body for intruders, whereas other cell types perform specific developmentally regulated migrations. One simple model for the latter type of event is migration of border cells during Drosophila oogenesis. Recent findings have shed light on how border cell fate is induced and on how the migration is guided. This article discusses the implications of these studies and compares (invasive) migration through a tissue with what is known about cells crawling on a flat substratum.
