Cellular Hardware

Part of the Biological and Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering book series (BIOMEDICAL)


Before we look at the biochemical machinery that enables cells to count molecules, to compare counts made at different times, and to use these results to control the direction of flagellar rotation, we need to know more about cell architecture.
