Hi all

I would like to know more about the term "cell dynamics". What does it encompass?

Cell dinamics? That could mean a ton of things. Basically it means that the cell is in permanent relation with the outside world, it's structure, shape and chemical components keep changing(within limits, that vary from one type of cell to the other)

so you mean the external and internal changes in cells like changes for cell movement, changes during cell cycle and during differentiation?

thanks for your reply!

Yeap, something like that. I'm guessing people would generally understand changes in shape, size etc(external) but it can also mean internal if you look at a cellular level. As i said, it is a very general term
