This chapter reviews the quantification of cell adhesion and motility with a focus on the assays that enable these analyses. A description of these critical biological processes is provided and the characteristic parameters are described. Each assay is then classified according to the metrics used to quantify cell adhesion or locomotion. Finally, some recent advances and future prospects for the field are presented.
Cell adhesion and motility are fundamental processes essential to the development and maintenance ...
